The mathematical concepts required to derive the Navier-Stokes equations from conservation principles and the consequent results of fluid dynamics are treated. In particular, the following topics are covered:
  • derivation of Stokes and Navier-Stokes equations,
  • potential flows, velocity-vorticity form of the Navier-Stokes equations,
  • circulation theorems,
  • turbulence.


  • M. Feistauer: Mathematical Methods in Fluid Dynamics.


Further literature will be announced in the lecture.
