Course Objectives: 1. Develop understanding of flow stability. (When, how, and why flows are unstable) 2. Develop capabilities a. Determine whether a particular flow is unstable b. Predict growth rates of instabilities and other properties of transition (wavelength, structures, resonance). c. Use understanding in a research environment.
