Fluid flows: from graphene to planet atmospheres: March 20-24, 2017

Organized by: Gregory Falkovich, Leonid Levitov and Alexander Zamolodchikov. Fluid mechanics in two dimensions has wide range of applications and possesses unique mathematical properties which are far from being fully explored and used. Even laminar and regular flows in two dimensions are of great interest ranging from microfluidics to emerging hydrodynamics of current flows in … Read more
