These lectures start with the mean field theory for a symmetric binary fluid mixture, addressing interfacial tension, the stress tensor, and the equations of motion (Model H). We then consider the phase separation kinetics of such a mixture.

Many organisms move through water or air in order to survive and reproduce. It is useful to analyze fluid motion as a collection of vortices: vortices interact with the moving organism, interact with each other, and evolve independently in time.

**The Secret of Sailing**

by

**Johan Hoffman, Johan Jansson, Claes Johnson**

This book presents a mathematical theory of sailing based on a combination of analysis and computation. This new theory is fundamentally different from that envisioned in the classical theories for lift in inviscid flow and for drag in viscous flow.
