Singularities in Classical, Quantum and Magnetic Fluids

20-23 October 2000

(Please note: this Workshop will take place at the Mathematics Institute –

University of Warwick)

The object:

The main aim is to initiate an exchange of ideas and methods of studying singularities among researchers working in different fields such as classical Navier-Stokes and Euler fluids, superfluids, magneto-hydrodynamics and fluid-like nonlinear properties of optical media.


This meeting will also review known singularities in fluid systems, and examine the current status of existing open questions.


The conference is a satellite workshop of a programme on Geometry and Topology of Fluid Flows organised at the Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences (Cambridge).



RS MacKay, X He, and S Nazarenko (Warwick), R Pelz (Rutgers University).


Expected Speakers:

CF Barenghi (Newcastle & INI), A Bhattacharjee  (University Iowa & INI), R Caflisch (UCLA), P Constantin (Chicago University), D Cordoba (Chicago University & INI), SC Cowley (UCLA & INI), SJ Cowley (DAMTP, Cambridge), U Frisch (Nice), JD Gibbon (Imperial College, London), R Grauer (Dusseldorf), JM Greene (General Atomics & INI), R Kerr  (NCAR), EA Kuznetsov (Landau Institute for Theoretical Physics, Moscow), HK Moffatt (INI, Cambridge), AC Newell (Warwick University), H Okamoto (RIMS, Kyoto University), R Pelz (Rutgers University & INI), JJ Rasmussen (Riso National Lab, Denmark), AM Rubenchick  (Livermore Labs), A Shnirelman  (Tel Aviv & INI), JT Stuart (Imperial College, London), S Turitsyn  (Aston University), C Vassilicos (DAMTP, Cambridge), M Vishik (University of Texas, Austin & INI), V Yudovich  (Rostov University & INI), VE Zakharov (Landau Institute for Theoretical Physics & University of Arizona).
