Special Topic in Mathematics
Special Topic 2012 - Inviscid Fluid DynamicsFluid Dynamics is the study of how aeroplanes fly, flags flap, blood flows, rivers run, waves break, and galaxies turn. Anything remotely fluid-like, from desert sand dunes through water fountains to the slow flow of mountains, can be described and studied by the methods of fluid mechanics. In this course, we will learn the fundamental definitions, theorems, and results of the basis of the subject, concentrating on flows which can reasonably be approximated by modelling a non-sticky (or inviscid) fluid. This course will be excellent preparation for the Semester 2 course in viscous fluid dynamics (MATH442-12S2).
This course will provide students with an opportunity to develop the Graduate Attributes specified below:
Critically competent in a core academic discipline of their award
Students know and can critically evaluate and, where applicable, apply this knowledge to topics/issues within their majoring subject.
Subject to approval of the Head of School.
