Title:

Schottky's storms: classical function theory and

ideal fluid mechanics



This talk will describe novel applications of

ideas from classical function theory (due to
Poincare,

Schottky, Schwarz and Klein, among others) to probl
ems

arising in ideal fluid
mechanics.

New solutions, only recently reported

in the literature, to some important
basic problems

will be presented and the constructive analytical

techniques outlined.


The problems considered arise in a variety of

applicatio
ns ranging

from geophysical
situations involving the dynamics of oceanic

eddies around islands and headlands,
aerodynamical

problems involving the computation of lift forces on

multi
-
component
aerofoils, through to astrophysical

applications requiring the
study of

vortex motion on
spherical shells.



The presentation should be of interest to anyone

with a basic knowledge of fluid
dynamics.
