About this book


The Introduction to Navier-Stokes Equation and Oceanography corresponds to a graduate course in mathematics, taught at Carnegie Mellon University in the spring of 1999. Comments were added to the lecture notes distributed to the students, as well as short biographical information for all scientists mentioned in the text, the purpose being to show that the creation of scientific knowledge is an international enterprise, and who contributed to it, from where, and when. The goal of the course is to teach a critical point of view concerning the partial differential equations of continuum mechanics, and to show the need for developing new adapted mathematical tools.
