# International Conference of Theoretical and Numerical Fluid Mechanics III

## Topic

The International Conference of Theoretical and Numerical Fluid Mechanics III is being held in honor of Professors Giovanni Paolo Galdi and Rolf Rannacher, in celebration of their sixtieth birthdays. Reflecting their interests, it will be an interdisciplinary meeting within the general field of mathematical and computational fluid dynamics, devoted mainly to Newtonian and non-Newtonian viscous flow. While promoting a high quality of mathematical treatment, no area of practical application will be excluded due to the present intractability of interesting mathematical difficulties. Thus, there will be lectures on turbulence, blood flow, sedimentation, fluid structure interaction, flow control, and the dynamical systems perspective, as well as key issues of the Navier-Stokes theory.

Short courses will be offered by Professors Galdi and Rannacher on the two days preceding the conference. Professor Rannacher will lecture on “Numerical methods for the simulation of fluid-structure interaction”. Professor Galdi will lecture on “Topics in the Mathematical Theory of Fluid-Solid Interaction”.

Registration is open to the general scientific and engineering community.
All registrants are invited to give poster presentations. Also, all
registrants along with their families are welcome and encouraged to join in
all of our sponsored social events. **PIMS has provided special funds for
supporting the travel of graduate students to attend this meeting. Graduate
students wishing such support should apply for it by writing to John
Heywood at heywood@math.ubc.ca **.
