Incompressible Inviscid Rotational Flows
Incompressible inviscid rotational flows are governed by the incompressible Euler equations. This system of equations, in spite of the simplicity of the physical model from which they have been deduced, gives rise to complicated mathematical problems. Many fundamental questions concerning the existence, uniqueness and smoothness of their solutions are still open. The study of these challenging problems is a matter of current research. The discussion of these theoretical problems is beyond the scope of this book. In this chapter we concern ourselves only with the numerical solution of the incompressible Euler equations.
