Fefferman, Charles L. (ed.) et al., Partial differential equations in fluid mechanics. Based on the workshop “PDEs in Fluid Mechanics”, Warwick, UK, September 26–30, 2016. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press. Lond. Math. Soc. Lect. Note Ser. 452, 289-326 (2018).
Summary: We give a survey of recent results on weak-strong uniqueness for compressible and incompressible Euler and Navier-Stokes equations and also make some new observations. The importance of the weak-strong uniqueness principle stems, on the one hand, from the instances of non-uniqueness for the Euler equations exhibited in the past years; and on the other hand from the question of convergence of singular limits, for which weak-strong uniqueness represents an elegant tool.
