Interface singularities for the Euler equations.
Seminar Room 2, Newton Institute Gatehouse
AbstractI will discuss the problem of interface singularities for the 3-D Euler equations. In the case of one-fluid interfaces, I will discuss the so-called "splash" and "splat" singularities, wherein the crest of a breaking wave crashes onto the trough, and hypersurfaces collide. In the case of two-fluid interfaces, I will explain why such singularities cannot form. This is joint work with D. Coutand.
If it doesn't, something may have gone wrong with our embedded player.
We'll get it fixed as soon as possible.
