Mathematical Fluid Mechanics (864G1)
15 credits, Level 7 (Masters)
The aim of this module is to provide an introduction to fluid mechanics, regarded from the perspective of the mathematical analysis of underlying PDE models. As such the content of the module is at the interface between pure and applied mathematics. The module focuses on the basic equations of fluid dynamics, namely the Navier-Stokes and Euler equations. These are the equations governing the motion of fluids such as water or air. Concepts such as derivation of the equations and existence of solutions will be explored.
