Stability and Instability in Fluids

Organizer of this minisymposium is

Following the seminal works of Bedrossian and Masmoudi on inviscid damping for Couette flow in the Euler equations, the investigation of (in)stability in fluids and mixing phenomena has become a very active field. In particular, these questions have further branched out into the study of numerous related models such as enhanced dissipation in the Boussinesq equations or Navier-Stokes equations. Here many new tools were developed to handle resonances, to describe and control mixing and to capture asymptotic behavior, both tailor-made to the properties of each specific problem and also identifying overarching mechanisms.
It is the objective of this minisymposium to bring together both early career and experienced researchers working in different areas of fluid dynamics and kinetic equations, to discuss recent results, methods and techniques and to build new connections.
