Differential Geometry of the Semi-Geostrophic and Euler Equations

Roulstone, I (University of Surrey)
Friday 06 December 2013, 09:45-10:30

Seminar Room 1, Newton Institute


The role of contact and symplectic geometry of the semi-geostophic (SG) equations, in describing their Legendrian and Hamiltonian properties, will be reviewed. Using the geometry of 2-forms in 4 dimensions and the geometry of 3-forms in 6 dimensions, we show that the incompressible Euler equations in 2 and 3 dimensions admit geometric structures akin to the those present in the SG equations.
