This quantity involves six articles, every one treating a major subject within the conception ofthe Navier-Stokes equations, on the learn point. a number of the articles are in most cases expository, placing jointly, in a unified atmosphere, the result of fresh examine papers and convention lectures. a number of different articles are committed as a rule to new effects, yet current them inside of a much wider context and with a fuller exposition than is common for journals. The plan to submit those articles as a e-book started with the lecture notes for the fast classes of G.P. Galdi and R. Rannacher, given at the start of the overseas Workshop on Theoretical and Numerical Fluid Dynamics, held in Vancouver, Canada, July 27 to August 2, 1996. A renewed power for this undertaking got here with the founding of the magazine of Mathematical Fluid Mechanics, via G.P. Galdi, J. Heywood, and R. Rannacher, in 1998. at the moment it was once made up our minds that this quantity could be released in organization with the magazine, and multiplied to incorporate articles through J. Heywood and W. Nagata, J. Heywood and M. Padula, and P. Gervasio, A. Quarteroni and F. Saleri. the unique lecture notes have been additionally revised and updated.
