Numerical Analysis Seminars: Rotating fluids in a spherical shell: a new hierarchy of constraints

Presented by Phil Livermore, University of Leeds

15 March 2013 14:00 in CM105

The dynamics of rotating fluids is important in understanding the interiors of many geophysical and astrophysical bodies. Neglecting terms which are likely small leads to complex dynamics at internal surfaces: I will discuss how a hierarchy of constraints that the fluid may satisfy can mitigate singularities and discontinuities.
