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.

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.
