References to this book Elementary Stabilihy Dynamics D. Instability of flows and their transition to turbulence are widespread phenomena in engineering and the natural environment, and are important in applied mathematics, astrophysics, biology, geophysics, meteorology, oceanography and physics as well as engineering. Encyclopedia of Mathematics and its Applications: These problems not only provide exercises for students but also provide many additional results in a concise form.

Influence of the various parameters of the problem on the interface stability is thoroughly discussed. The emphasis throughout is on the ideas involved, the physical mechanisms, the drqzin used, and the results obtained, and, wherever possible, the theory is related to both experimental and numerical results.

Koschmieder Limited preview – Table of contents Foreword; Preface; 1. This paper concerns the linear stability of three viscous fluid layers in porous media. It is found that the stabilizing role for the magnetic field is retarded when the flow is in porous media.

Readers are assumed to be fluent in linear algebra, advanced calculus, elementary theory of ordinary differntial equations, complex variable and the elements of fluid mechanics.
