Part of the Interdisciplinary Applied Mathematics book series (IAM, volume 2)


Over the past ten years much enthusiasm has arisen over the application of the methods of dynamical systems to problems concerned with mixing and transport in fluids; for a recent survey, see Ottino [1989]. The general setting for these problems is as follows.
