Abstract

Our main aim is to investigate the temperature patch problem for the two-dimensional incompressible Boussinesq system with partial viscosity: the initial temperature is the characteristic function of some simply connected domain with C1,ε Hölder regularity. Although recent results ensure that the C1 regularity of the patch persists for all time, whether higher order regularity is preserved has remained an open question. In the present paper, we give a positive answer to that issue. We also study the higher dimensional case, after prescribing an additional smallness condition involving critical Lebesgue or weak-Lebesgue norms of the data, so as to get a global-in-time statement. All our results stem from general properties of persistence of geometrical structures (of independent interest), that we establish in the first part of the paper.
