|Title:||About D'Alembert's paradox in mathematical fluid mechanics|
|Seminar:||CCMA Luncheon Seminar|
|Speaker:||David Gerard-Varet, Jussieu Paris, France|
|I will give a mathematical presentation of the so-called D'Alembert's paradox (1755): "Bodies moving at constant speed should not experience any drag or lift". Explaining this strange statement will lead us to discuss the mathematical difficulties associated with the transition from viscous to inviscid fluid models. This prepares for the colloquium talk I will give on boundary layer equations.|
