Non-uniqueness of weak solutions for forced fluid equations

Convex integration has for a decade now been used to produce impressive examples of the flexibility of weak solutions to fluid equations. Still, for many models there remains a gap between the regularity of the construction and the known or conjectured regularity at which uniqueness holds for the Cauchy problem. In this talk we present a new alternating approach to convex integration for forced models. As a consequence one obtains non-uniqueness results for forced 2D Euler, 3D Euler, and SQG, in some cases with higher regularity than possible with previous convex integration schemes.
