Mathematical and Geophysical Fluid Dynamics

February 13 to February 17, 2006

at the

American Institute of Mathematics, Palo Alto, California

organized by

Boris Rozovskii , Roger Temam, and Joseph Tribbia

Original Announcement

This workshop will bring together experts in the deterministic and stochastic dynamics of fluids and gases with experts in geosciences who work on numerical simulations of large scale models of climate and related subsystems. The main goal of the workshop is to facilitate transfer of recent advances in mathematical and computational Fluid Dynamics to the geophysical community involved in the modeling of the ocean and atmosphere, and to stimulate new developments in both areas.

Even though fluid equations have had a long and distinguished history, many of the fundamental mathematical questions associated with them remain an open challenge, such as the Clay Prize problem for the Navier-Stokes equations. In addition, there are many less famous problems which are nevertheless very important and which involve the Navier Stokes equations, as well as the Boussineq and Primitive equations of the oceans and the atmosphere.

Areas of interest for this workshop will include:
