Mathematical and Computational Issues in Dynamics and Turbulence

3:00 PM-5:00 PM

*Room: Ballroom III*

The mathematics of rotating and stratified flows, particularly the reduced systems that emerge from asymptotic analyses, have played an important role in developing useful conceptual frameworks, especially in theoretical and numerical calculations. The minisymposium will aim to establish rigorous results on the dynamics of such flows and focus attention on problems that require careful mathematical analysis and numerical algorithms. The speakers in this session will focus on theoretical issues.
