Abstract : A review of the research that has been carried out under the sponsorship of Air Force Office of Scientific Research grant number AFOSR-90-0179 is given. Details are given about two research programs, namely flow control and superconductivity. In both instances we have modeled realistic physical problems, we have performed rigorous analysis on the mathematical models, we have developed approximation schemes which we have also analyzed, and we have written computer codes implementing our computational method. In both instances, were the first to carry out such a comprehensive research program, and in so doing, have developed robust and useful algorithms that also embarked on a joint research program with personnel at AEDC facility in Tullahoma, Tennessee. We also briefly discuss other accomplishments related to this grant, including other research project invited talks, journal articles, etc.
