About this book

This book is a collection of papers presented at a symposium held in honor of Sidney Leibovich. According all papers deal with mathematical or computational aspects of fluid dynamics applied mostly to atmospheric or oceanographic problems. All contributions are research papers having not only the specialist but also graduate students in mind.


From the contents: Point Vortex Models and the Dynamics of Strong Vortices in the Atmosphere and Oceans.- Bubble Disconnection: Self-similarity and Cascading Physics.- Implicit Multi-grid Computation of Unsteady Flows with Applications to Aeroelasticity.- Second-harmonic Resonance with Parametric Excitation and Damping.- Bubbles and Temperature Fields in Langmuir Circulation.- Computing Periodic Orbits.- Dynamics of Layers in Geophysical Flows.- Radiative Transport in Anisotropic Media.- Wake-vortex Pollution: A Problem in Fluid Mechanics.- Turbulent Bursts in Couette-Taylor flows.- Surface-wave Effects on Winds and Currents in Marine Boundary Layers.- Synchronised Behaviour in Three Coupled Faraday Disk Homopolar Dynamos.- Large-eddy Simulation Using Projection onto Local Basis Functions.- Low-dimensional Dynamical Model of a Turbulent Boundary Layer over a Compliant Surface: Preliminary Results.
