Summer School and Workshop - Non-Homogeneous Fluids and Flows

The aim of the summer school is to present a comprehensive series of lectures on various aspects of non-homogeneous fluids and flows. The emphasize will be on mathematical, computational and experimental topics originating in environmental applications. The summer course is prepared for graduate students, young scientists, and other interested specialists. Besides of the course lectures, the program will include a one day workshop (on Wednesday, August 29) dedicated to short, more advanced lectures given by attending scientists.
Workshop time-schedule and abstracts of contributions are ready for download.
A special page was created for lecture notes. It will be updated during the course week. You can download the lecture notes here.
The preliminary schedule of lectures for the Summer School is now available for download.
