Announcements The Department of Mathematics at the University of Texas at Arlington will host a short course on Flow Transition and Turbulence - Physical Nature and High Order Direct Numerical Simulation on May 11-15, 2009.

The course's Principal Lecturer will be Yury S. Kachanov, PhD, of the Institute of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics, Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences. Prof. Kachanov discovered the C-type flow transition by experiment and is a worldwide recognized authority on flow transition and turbulence.

6) Basic ideas of experimental approaches to the transition and turbulence researches.
7) Three bright examples of flow instabilities.
8) Boundary-layer receptivity to various external perturbations.
9) Three bright examples of the boundary-layer receptivity problems.
10) Nonlinear interactions of instability modes. Role of resonances.
11) Formation of vortical structures at late stages of turbulence origin and their universality.
12) Turbulence production mechanisms in transitional and turbulent flows and their similarity.
13) Deterministic turbulence Ė myth or reality?
14) Transition prediction approaches.
15) Control of boundary layer transition.
16) Control of turbulent boundary layers.
17) Concluding remarks.

Part II Direct Numerical Simulation for Flow Transition (Chaoqun Liu)
