@article{Cardona2021LookingAE, title={Looking at Euler flows through a contact mirror: Universality and undecidability}, author={Robert Cardona and Eva Miranda and Daniel Peralta-Salas}, journal={ArXiv}, year={2021}, volume={abs/2107.09471} }

The dynamics of an inviscid and incompressible fluid flow on a Riemannian manifold is governed by the Euler equations. In recent papers [5, 6, 7, 8] several unknown facets of the Euler flows have been discovered, including universality properties of the stationary solutions to the Euler equations. The study of these universality features was suggested by Tao as a novel way to address the problem of global existence for Euler and Navier-Stokes [28]. Universality of the Euler equations was proved… Expand

Turing universality of the incompressible Euler equations and a conjecture of Moore

- Computer Science, Mathematics
- International Mathematics Research Notices
- 2021

A compact Riemannian manifold of high dimension on which the time dependent Euler equations are Turing complete is constructed, implying the undecidability of whether a solution to the Euler equation with an initial datum will reach a certain open set or not in the space of divergence-free fields.
