Title: Solutions to the 2D Euler equations with velocity unbounded at infinity

Abstract: In 1995, P. Serfati established existence and uniqueness of weak solutions to the 2D Euler equations with velocity and vorticity bounded and potentially nondecaying at infinity. We discuss Serfati's existence result and outline a proof of existence for a broader class in which vorticity is bounded and nondecaying, while velocity may grow at infinity at a rate slower than a power of the logarithmic function.
