Title:An introduction to the Navier-Stokes equations of Fluid Mechanics
Seminar:Slow Pitch Seminar
Speaker:Anna Mazzucato
Abstract:
I will derive the Navier-Stokes and Euler equations describing the motion of incompressible fluids from physical principles. I will then discuss how to apply techniques from Analysis to study the existence and uniqueness of solutions to the Navier-Stokes equations. One facet of this study leads to one of the "million dollar" problems in Mathematics.
