This volume contains a series of articles on wave phenomena and fluid dynamics, highlighting recent advances in these two areas of mathematics. The collection is based on lectures presented at the conference "Fluids and Waves--Recent Trends in Applied Analysis" and features a rich spectrum of mathematical techniques in analysis and applications to engineering, neuroscience, physics, and biology. The mathematical topics discussed range from partial differential equations, dynamical systems and stochastic processes, to areas of classical analysis.

This volume is intended as an introduction to major topics of interest and state-of-the-art analytical research in wave motion and fluid flows. It is helpful to junior mathematicians to stay abreast of new techniques and recent trends in these areas of mathematics. The articles here also provide a unique scientific basis for recent results and new links between current research themes. In summary, this book is a guide for experts in one field to the issues of the other, and will challenge graduate students to investigate these areas of analysis in further detail.


Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in mathematical aspects of fluid dynamics.
