THE MS2DISCOVERY INTERDISCIPLINARY RESEARCH INSTITUTE Unstable Interfaces and Plumes Waterloo | Canada Larry Forbes | University of Tasmania In many applications involving waves at the surface of a fluid, it is often sufficient just to consider steady-state situations, where the wave pattern does not change noticeably with time. Waves behind moving ships are one such example. There is an enormous literature on such situations, and at least for two-dimensional flow, steady waves can be computed reasonably accurately. This talk will consider some examples of unsteady fluid flow, characterized by the presence of an unstable interface. We will discuss how fluid viscosity and interface thickness change the singular behaviour predicted by (non-linear) inviscid theory, in some surprisingly subtle ways. Hosted by Roderick Melnik

He did his Ph.D. with Len Schwartz and the late Ernie Tuck on steady water waves produced by under-sea objects. He then worked for the Defence Department in Melbourne, before moving to the University of Iowa to work with Lou Landweber. He was an Assistant Professor at Kansas State, and then moved to Queensland University back in Australia. Since 2000, he has been a full Professor at the University of Tasmania. He is interested in non-linear fluid-flow problems, dynamical systems and the use of Applied Mathematics to design medical imaging equipment....

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
