Title:Fluids and the skew mean curvature flow.
Seminar:Applied Analysis Seminar
Speaker:Boris Khesin, University of Toronto
Abstract Link:http://
We show that an approximation of the incompressible Euler equation describes the skew-mean-curvature flow on vortex membranes in any dimension. This generalizes the classical binormal, or vortex filament, equation in 3D. We present a Hamiltonian framework for higher-dimensional vortex filaments and vortex sheets as singular 2-forms with support of codimensions 2 and 1, respectively. This framework, in particular, allows one to define the symplectic structures on the spaces of vortex sheets. Preprint: arXiv:1201.5914
