The AlmaMAC 172: Sawayra and Pritpal Matharu talk Navier-Stokes, turbulence, and MATH

LISTEN

The Navier-Stokes equation is like the e=mc2 for fluid dynamics. It’s like the F=ma for flow. It’s used to model fluids, airstreams, flow of money, and a wide variety of other things, and it’s been around for a very long time… but we don’t actually know how to solve it…

This week, Sawayra talks to Pritpal Matharu, a graduate student in the Math department at McMaster University, who specializes in Navier-Stokes, and explains what it means to finally “solve” the equation.

Thanks again to Sawayra for well, for everything. Follow her on twitter @SeeingAWay .Β
