Navier-Stokes Equations

September-December, 2013, and March-May, 2014


Instructor: Tai-Peng Tsai, UBC Math.

Lecture notes are updated weekly. The link will be distributed by the instructor.

These lectures are given while I visit the Center for Advanced Study in Theoretical Sciences (CASTS) of the National Taiwan University (NTU) in the academic year 2013-2014. They are delivered in a seminar series run by Professor Chang-Shou Lin.

Spring 2014 meeting time: Wednesday 9:30am to 11:30am,

Fall 2013 meeting time: Tuesday 9:10am to 11:50am,
