Professor of Mathematics, University of Texas at Austin

 

Time & Place: Thursday, April 24th, at 5:15pm in the Smith Memorial Student Union, Room 327/28/29

Abstract: The Navier Stokes equation is a mathematical model that describes (in a very coarse way) the flow of a viscous fluid in a given "container" or through a given "configuration". Nowadays, it is used systematically as one of the components in large numerical simulations of complex phenomena. Nevertheless, the understanding of its properties is incomplete and a big scientific challenge.
