Part of the Applied Mathematical Sciences book series (AMS, volume 143)


Longtime dynamical issues arise in many areas in the world about us. For example, one finds them in various fluid flows as illustrated by 1) heat transfer and its effects on global climate modeling and weather prediction; 2) flows of multiphased fluids and oil recovery; 3) behavior of chemical solutes in lakes, harbors and river basins; 4) geothermal consequences of magma flows; and 5) fluid flows in thin films. In order to understand the modeling of such phenomena, one needs good mathematical tools coupled with sound insight into the physics and the chemistry of the problems.
