Abstract:

The purpose of this seminar was to bring scientists interested in computational fluid mechanics together with numerical analysts and mathematicians working in large-scale computations. The numerical modeling included geophysical problems of the atmosphere, ocean, and interior of the earth, and planetary, solar, and stellar atmospheres. Applications ranged from idealized turbulence in laboratory convection models to operational weather prediction. Engineering applications included aerodynamics, combustion, and flow in porous media. Recent advances in numerical analysis which have applications to these problems were stressed. These include shock capturing algorithms, spectral methods, boundary treatments, vortex methods, and parallel computing. Fifty lectures were given during the two-week seminar this book containing the proceedings is the result. The subject matter of the lectures was equally divided between mathematics and applications. In addition to specialized research lectures, several speakers gave talks surveying important areas of numerical analysis and computational fluid dynamics.
