Abstract. We shall discuss the Cauchy problems for the Camassa-Holm (CH) and the Euler equations. More precisely, we shall prove that the data-to-solution map for these
equations is not uniformly continuous in Sobolev spaces for any exponent greater than the well-posedness index.
Considering the fact that these equations are well-posed with continuous dependence on initial data, our results make this
dependence optimal. This talk is based on recent work with Carlos Kenig and Gerard Misiolek.
