What Can Mathematical Analysis Reveal About The Behavior Of A Fluid?

The study of flows or fluid mechanics began since antiquity for everyday applications such as irrigation in agriculture. Several innovative and complex irrigation systems have been discovered in ancient cities. The inclusion of mathematics has revolutionized the fluid mechanics owing to the works of Daniel Bernoulli, Jean Rond d'Alembert, and Leonhard Euler. The introduction by Henry Navier in 1820 of the concept of viscosity, allowed George Gabriel Stokes to introduce the Navier-Stokes equations which will mark the whole history of...
