Number of pages: 52
Mixing is relevant to many areas of science and engineering, including the pharmaceutical and food industries, oceanography, atmospheric sciences, and civil engineering. In all these situations one goal is to quantify and often then to improve the degree of homogenisation of a substance being stirred, referred to as a passive scalar or tracer.

Microfluidics is the science of fluid flows at the microscopic scale. This book will deal with the basic physical principles involved in microfluidics. We hope it will provide a background knowledge to consult more specialized books or article.

There are many deep open questions that come with the theory of fluid mechanics. 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 conditions.

This book concerns the problem of evolution of a round oil spot surrounded by water when oil is extracted from a well inside the spot. It turns out that the boundary of the spot remains an algebraic curve of degree four in the course of evolution.

Series of lectures on statistical turbulence written for amateurs but not experts. Elementary aspects and problems of turbulence in two and three dimensional Navier-Stokes equation are introduced. A few properties of scalar turbulence are described.
