1.068 Nonlinear Dynamics and Turbulence

Class Info

Reviews theoretical notions of nonlinear dynamics, instabilities, and waves with applications in fluid dynamics. Discusses hydrodynamic instabilities leading to flow destabilization and transition to turbulence. Focuses on physical turbulence and mixing from homogenous isotropic turbulence. Also covers topics such as rotating and stratified flows as they arise in the environment, wave-turbulence, and point source turbulent flows. Students taking graduate version complete additional assignments.

This class has no prerequisites.

Lecture occurs 3:30 PM to 5:00 PM on Mondays and Wednesdays in 5-134.
