Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to understand hydrodynamic stability and the transition from laminar flow to turbulence and to gain important insights for the solution of flow problems.

Subject of course

Fundamental techniques like linear stability analysis, bifurcation analysis, and dissipative dynamics in phase space are treated. Besides, fundamental physical mechanisms are studied based on important paradigms: Ginzburg-Landau amplitude equation, Kelvin-Helmholtz instability, Rayleigh instability, Taylor-Couette system, Rayleigh-Benard problem, and pipe flow.
