Recent Advances in Fluids

October 10-13, 2015

Rice University

Houston, TX

Main Speakers:

Fluids are ubiquitous in nature, science and engineering. Observations of a range of fluid and fluid-like behavior can be found throughout atmospheric and ocean science, astrophysics, chemistry, biology and ecology. Many of these phenomena are modeled by the partial differential equations of fluid mechanics. These are some of the most difficult partial differential equations to analyze, as they are nonlinear and usually nonlocal.

Each main speaker will present four one-hour lectures. The meeting is primarily aimed at graduate students, postdoctoral associates and other mathematicians starting their research careers, but everyone interested is welcome to attend. Poster session and short presentations will be a part of the workshop. Please use the poster registration form to submit your title and abstract.

We may be able to partially cover travel and local expenses for junior participants. Applications for financial support should be submitted by Monday, September 14, 2015. Early applications will be given a priority.

The event is a part of the NSF Focused Research Group (FRG) project involving the groups of Peter Constantin (Princeton), Tom Hou (Caltech), Sasha Kiselev (Rice), Lenya Ryzhik (Stanford), and Vladimir Sverak (Minnesota).
