In this paper, we will survey some recent results on the study of the viscous and invisid compressible flow with vacuum. It is well-known that the study on vacuum has significance in the investigation on some important physical phenomena. However, most of the important questions about vacuum are still open due to the singularities caused by vacuum which need new mathematical tools and techniques to handle.
