      Abstract

      We face the well-posedness of linear transport Cauchy problems $$\begin{cases}\dfrac{\partial u}{\partial t} + b\cdot\nabla u + c\,u = f&(0,T)\times{\mathbb R}^n\\u(0,\cdot)=u_0\in L^\infty&{\mathbb R}^n\end{cases}$$ under borderline integrability assumptions on the divergence of the velocity field \(b\). For \(W^{1,1}_{loc}\) vector fields \(b\) satisfying \(\frac{|b(x,t)|}{1+|x|}\in L^1(0,T; L^1)+L^1(0,T; L^\infty)\) and $$\operatorname{div} b\in L^\infty + \operatorname{Exp}\left(\frac{L}{\log^\gamma L}\right),$$ we prove existence and uniqueness of weak solutions when \(\gamma=1\). Moreover, optimality is shown by providing examples of non-uniqueness for every \(\gamma>1\). Stability questions and further extensions to the \(BV\) setting are also addressed.
