**Using Multiscale Norms to Quantify Mixing and Transport**

by Jean-Luc Thiffeault

**Publisher**: arXiv 2011**Number of pages**: 52

**Description**:

Mixing is relevant to many areas of science and engineering, including the pharmaceutical and food industries, oceanography, atmospheric sciences, and civil engineering. In all these situations one goal is to quantify and often then to improve the degree of homogenisation of a substance being stirred, referred to as a passive scalar or tracer.

**New York University**

This course will deal with a mathematical idealization of common fluids. The main idealization is embodied in the notion of a continuum and our 'fluids' will generally be identified with a certain connected set of points in 1, 2, or 3 dimensions.

**The Secret of Sailing**

by

**Johan Hoffman, Johan Jansson, Claes Johnson**

This book presents a mathematical theory of sailing based on a combination of analysis and computation. This new theory is fundamentally different from that envisioned in the classical theories for lift in inviscid flow and for drag in viscous flow.
