A fundamental question in mathematical physics is whether the problem is well posed. In other words, does it have a unique solution? Concerning the dynamics of incompressible fluids, the answer is very incomplete, especially in three-dimensions. For example, one does not know whether the 3D Navier-Stokes equation is well posed for all time. Only the existence of (possibly non unique) weak solutions, i.e. solutions in the sense of distribution, is established[1].
