An Isaac Newton Institute Event

Euler at Newton: The Inviscid Equations

Friday 31 October 2008

Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences, Cambridge, UK

Organisers: Professor John Gibbon (Imperial College, London), Professor Robert Kerr (Warwick) and Professor Rich Kerswell (Bristol)

in association with the Newton Institute programme The Nature of High Reynolds Number Turbulence (26 August to 19 December 2008)


Last year (2007) the IUTAM Symposium Euler250 marked the 250th anniversary of the publication of Euler's equations by bringing together the world's leading authorities on the influence these idealised equations have had on fluid dynamics and scientific thought. This short workshop will be one of the first opportunities to discuss what has been accomplished since. Emphasis will be on recent numerical advances, data analysis suggested by mathematics and the prospects for understanding their relevance to turbulence described by the viscous Navier-Stokes equations.

Anyone interested is welcome to attend. Please let Tracey Andrew at the Institute know by 24 October 2008 if you intend to come: telephone (01223) 760992; fax: (01223) 330508; e-mail:
