There are many deep open questions that come with the theory of fluid mechanics. In this paper, we discuss some of them that we classify in two categories, the long term behavior of solutions of equations of hydrodynamics and the definition of initial (boundary) conditions.

In these notes we study liquid layers, capillary interfaces and floating bodies. Leading term in the associated equilibrium equation for the interface is the mean curvature. In the case of liquid layers no volume constraint or contact angle occur.

An introduction to the field of numerical hydrodynamics. It will give you some insight in what is involved in such calculations. Numerical hydrodynamics is used in many parts of astrophysics. The applications we consider in this exercise are stellar.

Introductory textbook for the fluid mechanics in undergraduate classes for engineering/science students. It can be used as a reference book for people who have at least some basics knowledge of science areas such as calculus, physics, etc.

A theory of subsonic flight based on a combination of analysis and computation. We uncover a mechanism for the generation of substantial lift at the expense of small drag of a wing, which is fundamentally different from the classical theories.
