There are many deep open questions that come with the theory of fluid mechanics. 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 conditions.

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.
