Sensitivity Analysis of Partial Differential Equations With Applications to Fluid Flow


For over 100 years, researchers have attempted to predict transition to turbulence in fluid flows by analyzing the spectrum of the linearized Navier-Stokes equations. However, for many simple flows, this approach has failed to match experimental results. Recently, new scenarios for transition have been proposed that are based on the non-normality of the… (More)
