Bifurcation Analysis of Fluid Flows book Fred Wubs and Henk Dijkstra

Cambridge University Press
Fred Wubs (Computational & Numerical Mathematics) is co-author of the recently published book "Bifurcation Analysis of Fluid Flows". He wrote the book together with Henk Dijkstra of Utrecht University. The book is a must-have reference for anyone working in scientific fields where fluid flow instabilities play a role.

A better understanding of the mechanisms leading a fluid system to exhibit turbulent behavior is one of the grand challenges of the physical and mathematical sciences. Over the last few decades, numerical bifurcation methods have been extended and applied to a number of flow problems to identify critical conditions for fluid instabilities to occur. This book provides a state-of-the-art account of these numerical methods, with much attention to modern linear systems solvers and generalized eigenvalue solvers. These methods also have a broad applicability in industrial, environmental and astrophysical flows.
Exercises at the end of each chapter and Python code for the bifurcation analysis of canonical fluid flow problems provide practice material to get to grips with the methods and concepts presented in the book.
