Mathematical analysis of fluid flows: the challenge of randomness

Project description

Maths face the challenge to reveal the role of randomness in fluid dynamics

The EU-funded FluFloRan project aims to address several, long lasting, open problems in the mathematical theory of fluid flows. The project will work on finding the right solutions to nonlinear partial differentiation equations that describe flows in liquids and gases. Major attention will be dedicated to the iconic example, the Navier-Stokes system for incompressible fluids and the corresponding Millennium Problem. The project assumes that a probabilistic description is indispensable for modelling fluid flows – to capture the chaotic behaviour of deterministic systems after blow-up – and describing model uncertainties due to high sensitivity to input data or parameter reduction.
