An Introduction to the Geometry and Topology of Fluid Flows: by Renzo L. Ricca

By Renzo L. Ricca

best specialists current a distinct, necessary advent to the examine of the geometry and typology of fluid flows. From easy motions on curves and surfaces to the new advancements in knots and hyperlinks, the reader is progressively ended in discover the attention-grabbing international of geometric and topological fluid mechanics.
Geodesics and chaotic orbits, magnetic knots and vortex hyperlinks, continuous flows and singularities turn into alive with greater than one hundred sixty figures and examples.
within the establishing article, H. okay. Moffatt units the velocity, providing 8 extraordinary difficulties for the twenty first century. The e-book is going directly to supply suggestions and methods for tackling those and lots of different attention-grabbing open problems.
