Long-time behavior of "generic" 2d Euler solutions is expected to be governed by conserved quantities and simple variational principles related to them. Proving or disproving this from the dynamics is a notoriously difficult problem which remains unsolved. The variational problems which arise from these conjectures are interesting by themselves and we will present some results concerning these problems.
