Mathematics of Fluid Dynamics
Lyon, October 20-23, 2014
Fluid mechanics has always been the source of challenging mathematical problems. This workshop is dedicated to the subject of Fluid Dynamics and PDE, focusing on modeling and rigorous analysis of physically relevant problems in fluid dynamics, particularly highly irregular incompressible flows. The research in this field touches upon many different problems with relevant applications, such as problems in aerodynamics, oceanographic flows and geophysical flows. It is a field which has generated intense international research activity over the last decades.

The purpose of this workshop is to bring together recognized experts and young researchers working in this field and to foster scientific interaction among the participants. The mini-course of Prof. Cordoba and the invited talks will reflect the variety of mathematical tools and problems arising in the study of the dynamical aspects of fluids.

This meeting will take place at the University of Lyon 1, Institut Camille Jordan (the Mathematics department) in the Braconnier building. Lyon forms the second-largest metropolitan area in France after that of Paris, with a population of 1,3 million inhabitants. It has a reputation as the French capital of gastronomy. The University of Lyon 1 represents one of the main higher education institutions in the country, both in terms of student population and scientific productivity.
