### Uniqueness of minimizers in the Calculus of Variations

Let $f \colon \mathbb R^2 \to \mathbb R$ be the function defined by
$$
f(x,y):= (x^+)^2 + (y^+)^2
$$
where $a^+ = \max\{a,0\}$ for any real number $a$.
Given a Lipschitz regular domain $\Omega \...

### Lotka Volterra existence of Caratheodory solution

I strive to prove that the following system of differential equations:
$$\begin{cases} x'=x-u(t)xy\\ y'= -y+u(t)xy \\ x(0)=x_0>0\\ y(0)=y_0>0 \end{cases}$$
has a unique Caratheodory solution ...

### Has it been proved that weak solutions to the Navier-Stokes equations are non-unique, and does this prove that the Navier-Stokes are not valid?

This preprint claims that, for finite kinetic energy initial solutions, uniqueness of weak solutions to the Navier-Stokes equations doesn't hold:
https://arxiv.org/abs/1709.10033
What's the current ...

### Existence and uniqueness of geodesics in low regularity

Consider a Riemannian manifold $(M,g)$.
How much regularity is required of $g$ so that for any $x\in M$ and $v\in T_xM$ with $|v|=1$ there exists a unique geodesic $\gamma\colon(-\epsilon,\epsilon)\to ...
