Together with Daniel Han-Kwan, we recently wrote a paper, entitled “Instabilities in the mean field limit”, to be published on the Journal of Statistical Physics (see here for a preprint). I shall explain our main theorem below.

I go on with some basic concepts and classical results in fluid dynamics [numbering is in accordance with the previous notes]. Throughout this section, I consider compressible barotropic ideal fluids with the pressure law {p = p(\rho)} or incompressible ideal fluids with constant density {\rho = \rho_0} (and hence, the pressure is an unknown function in the incompressible case).

This Spring ’16 semester, I am teaching a graduate Math 505 course, whose goal is to introduce the basic concepts and the fundamental mathematical problems in Fluid Mechanics for students both in math and engineering. The difficulty is to assume no background in both fluids and analysis of PDEs from the students. That’s it!
