Overview

This book describes current research and applications in interfacial fluid dynamics and stability. It is organized around five topics: Benard and thermocapillary instabilities, shear- and pressure-induced instabilities, waves and dispersions, multiphase systems, and complex flows. Chapters have been contributed by internationally recognized experts, both theoreticians and experimentalists.. "Because of the range and importance of topics discussed, this book will interest a broad audience of graduate students, faculty, and researchers in mechanical, aerospace, materials, and chemical engineering, as well as in applied mathematics and physics.
