**Some Open Questions in Hydrodynamics**

by Mateusz Dyndal, Laurent Schoeffel

**Publisher**: arXiv 2014**Number of pages**: 24

**Description**:

There are many deep open questions that come with the theory of fluid mechanics. In this paper, we discuss some of them that we classify in two categories, the long term behavior of solutions of equations of hydrodynamics and the definition of initial (boundary) conditions.
