Fluid dynamics, Analysis, and Numerics 2010

A conference in honor of J. Thomas Beale

Tom Beale

Duke University, Department of Mathematics, Durham, North Carolina
June 28-30, 2010



Mathematical fluid dynamics spans many areas from rigorous analysis of nonlinear partial differential equations to numerical analysis to modeling and applied analysis of related physical systems and has provided a very fertile setting for long standing research problems in these areas:

  • Analysis of PDEs for fluid dynamics: rigorous results for regularity, existence, uniqueness for Navier-Stokes and Euler, problems with free-surfaces and surface tension, convergence of vortex methods and splitting methods to solutions of the full problems
  • Fluid motion driven by interfaces: computational methods and analysis of problems with moving interfaces
  • Computational methods for fluid dynamics: advances in computational methods and applications
Thomas Beale has made important contributions to many problems in these areas. The FAN 2010 meeting will bring together leading researchers to discuss current issues in fluid dynamics, analysis and numerics.

The conference will feature talks by a list of invited speakers and an extended poster session for contributed research presentations by conference participants. The meeting will last approximately two and a half days, with a banquet on the first evening, and the poster session on the afternoon of the second day.
