There are no announcements
This course is part of the MAGIC core.
This is offered as a core course for Applied.
Spring 2019 (Monday, January 21 to Friday, March 29)
It will be assumed that students are familiar with the Navier-Stokes equations. Any previous experience of perturbation methods would be an advantage, but is not essential, as the main ideas will be introduced as needed.
Clicking on the link for a book will take you to the relevant Google Book Search page. You may be able to preview the book there. On the right hand side you will see links to places where you can buy the book. There is also link marked 'Find this book in a library'. This sometimes works well, but not always. (You will need to enter your location, but it will be saved after you do that for the first time.)
The assessment for this course will be via a single take-home paper made available at the end of the module, with 2 weeks to complete and submit solutions online. Questions may be of different lengths. The number marks for each question will be indicated. The pass mark will be 50%.
