Liquid Layers, Capillary Interfaces and Floating Bodies
by Erich Miersemann
Publisher: Leipzig University 2013
Number of pages: 209
In these notes we study liquid layers, capillary interfaces and floating bodies. The leading term in the associated equilibrium equation for the interface is the mean curvature. In the case of liquid layers no volume constraint or contact angle occur.

A theory of subsonic flight based on a combination of analysis and computation. We uncover a mechanism for the generation of substantial lift at the expense of small drag of a wing, which is fundamentally different from the classical theories.

In writing this book, while preserving the usual rigour, the endeavour has been made to impart to it by the character of the illustrations and examples, a modern and practical flavour which will render it more widely useful. The calculus is not used.

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.

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.
