We consider the two-dimensional viscous Burgers system without external forcing. For complex-valued solutions, due to the loss of maximum principle and energy estimates, smooth solutions can develop finite-time singularities. We construct an open set of six-parameter families of initial conditions such that the corresponding solutions exhibit blowups in finite time.
