Title:Geometric aspects of fluid flows and some finite dimensional model problems
Seminar:Marker Lecture Series
Speaker:Professor Vladimir Sverak, University of Minnesota
Abstract:
The equations describing inviscid incompressible fluid flows can be interpreted as equations for geodesics in the group of volume-preserving diffeomorphism. This geometric viewpoint was pioneered by V.I. Arnold, and further developed by many other mathematicians. Some of the questions arising in this context are interesting even for finite-dimensional groups, and in the lecture we will discuss some problems in this direction.
