Talk by Tristian Buckmaster on turbulence

Hi Nullset, I hope you all had a great fall break! If not, maybe you had a good autumn break or a decent October break. Either way, welcome back to campus. Sorry for the short notice on this one, but given that tomorrow is Tuesday (as opposed to Onesday), it’ll be two times the fun.

Tomorrow’s math colloquium will be featuring Professor Tristan Buckmaster, who will be presenting on convex integration and phenomenologies in turbulence).

Who? Professor Tristan Buckmaster

What? Convex integration and phenomenologies in turbulence

When? Tuesday, November 5 at 4:30pm

Where? Fine 214

Food? Your choice of Bubble Tea and Tacos (which we will not bring, but if you brought yourself tacos you could have a Math Talk Taco Tuesday, which sounds really hard to pass on)

Abstract: In this talk, I will discuss a number of recent results concerning wild weak solutions of the incompressible Euler and Navier-Stokes equations. These results build on the groundbreaking works of De Lellis and Székelyhidi Jr., who extended Nash’s fundamental ideas on flexible isometric embeddings, into the realm of fluid dynamics. These techniques, which go under the umbrella name convex integration, have fundamental analogies with the phenomenological theories of hydrodynamic turbulence.


We hope to see you there!
Your academic chairs, Nathan and Tristan
