Mathematical concepts required to deduce the Navier-Stokes equations from conservation principles as well as numerical methods for finding their solution are discussed and analyzed. In particular, the following topics are covered:
  • derivation of Stokes and Navier-Stokes equations,
  • solution methods for the Stokes equation,
  • approximation methods for equations of fluid dynamics.


  • M. Feistauer: Mathematical Methods in Fluid Dynamics,
  • E.F. Toro: Riemann Solvers and Numerical Methods for Fluid Dynamics.


Further literature will be announced in the lecture.
