Some open problems and research directions in the mathematical study of fluid dynamics .

  title={Some open problems and research directions in the mathematical study of fluid dynamics .},
  author={Peter Constantin}
This is an essay in the literal sense: an attempt. As such, it does not conform to the norm of scientific objectivity but attempts to describe a point of view. In it I describe a number of questions concerning the mathematics of fluids. They range from rather broad issues to technical problems that serve a specific, limited purpose. Some of these questions can be phrased with great precision; others I will have to leave in a form that calls for further development. The questions and directions… CONTINUE READING
