Title: Local wellposedness of SQG front model

Abstract: In this talk, we consider a model equation for SQG vortex patch problem. Due to the free boundary, there is loss of derivative in the energy estimate. We will propose a weighted energy estimate to solve this problem to get well posedness in proper Sobolev space.
