This paper establishes the global existence of weak solutions to the Burgers-Hilbert equation, for general initial data in L2 (ℝ). For positive times, the solution lies in L2 ∩ L∞ . A partial uniqueness result is proved for spatially periodic solutions, as long as the total variation remains locally bounded.
