Abstract:

The interest in the analysis of nonlinear effects is motivated by examples of insufficient agreement between observation and results of the linear theory for the prototypes of Taylor-Couette flow and plane Poiseuille flow. The principal methods of the analysis of nonlinear problems are characterized. The weakly nonlinear theory for a single normal mode and the calculation and use of high-order landau constants is discussed. A survey is given on weakly nonlinear models of observed phenomena.
