Topological Fluid Mechanics Summary


Topological Fluid Mechanics: Proceedings of the IUTAM Symposium, Cambridge, UK, 13-18 August, 1989 by Edited by H. K. Moffatt

There has been developing interest in the aspects of fluid mechanics and of magnetohydrodynamics that can properly be described as topological, rather than exclusively analytical in character. This book contains the proceedings of the IUTAM symposium on Topological Fluid Mechanics held at Cambridge UK, 13-18 August, 1989. Topics covered include the kinematic and dynamical problems in laminar and turbulent flows as well as the range of problems that arise from the magneto-hydrodynamics of highly conducting flows. The papers presented cover all approaches, theoretical, computational and experimental, and each paper has been edited by a member of the International Scientific Committee.

Topological Fluid Mechanics Reviews


"...a genuinely useful book, and the reader is forced to think about some ideas which he did no pay due attention to before. The volume is useful for general reading, especially for those who teach fluid mechanics. It ought to be in the libraries of universities and research bodies related to fluid mechanics....a worthy contribution to the sequence of summarizing accounts of fluid mechanics which have emanated from Cambridge. Like those, it will attract general attention and collect a lot of citations." G.I. Barenblatt, J. Fluid Mech.
