### A uniqueness result for the continuity equation in two dimensions

We characterize the autonomous, divergence-free vector fields $b$ on the plane such that the Cauchy problem for the continuity equation ${\partial}_{t}u+\frac{.}{\dot{}}\left(bu\right)=0$ admits a unique bounded solution (in the weak sense) for every bounded initial datum; the characterization is given in terms of a property of Sard type for the potential $f$ associated to $b$. As a corollary we obtain uniqueness under the assumption that the curl of $b$ is a measure. This result can be extended to certain non-autonomous vector fields $b$ with bounded divergence....
