Since Prandtl first suggested it in 1904, boundary layer theory has become a fundamental aspect of fluid dynamics. Although a vast literature exists for theoretical and experimental aspects of the theory, for the most part, mathematical studies can be found only in separate, scattered articles. Mathematical Models in Boundary Layer Theory offers the first systematic exposition of the mathematical methods and main results of the theory.

Beginning with the basics, the authors detail the techniques and results that reveal the nature of the equations that govern the flow within boundary layers and ultimately describe the laws underlying the motion of fluids with small viscosity. They investigate the questions of existence and uniqueness of solutions, the stability of solutions with respect to perturbations, and the qualitative behavior of solutions and their asymptotics. Of particular importance for applications, they present methods for an approximate solution of the Prandtl system and a subsequent evaluation of the rate of convergence of the approximations to the exact solution.

Written by the world's foremost experts on the subject, Mathematical Models in Boundary Layer Theory provides the opportunity to explore its mathematical studies and their importance to the nonlinear theory of viscous and electrically conducting flows, the theory of heat and mass transfer, and the dynamics of reactive and muliphase media. With the theory's importance to a wide variety of applications, applied mathematicians-especially those in fluid dynamics-along with engineers of aeronautical and ship design will undoubtedly welcome this authoritative, state-of-the-art treatise.

Editorial Reviews

This book provides a thorough exposition of results and mathematical methods in boundary layer theory. The existence and uniqueness theorems under natural assumptions on the data are proven for Prandtl's boundary layer equations and their generalizations. The book also considers the asymptotic behaviors of the solutions of boundary layer equations, and many other mathematical problems. It is intended for researchers in the aircraft and ship-building industries, as well as students in mathematics, mechanics, and engineering. Oleinik is head of the Department of Differential Equations at the Faculty of mathematics and Mechanics of Moscow State University. Samokhin teaches mathematics at Moscow State University.
