**Liquid Layers, Capillary Interfaces and Floating Bodies**

by Erich Miersemann

**Publisher**: Leipzig University 2013**Number of pages**: 209

**Description**:

In these notes we study liquid layers, capillary interfaces and floating bodies. The 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.

This course will deal with a mathematical idealization of common fluids. The main idealization is embodied in the notion of a continuum and our 'fluids' will generally be identified with a certain connected set of points in 1, 2, or 3 dimensions.

**The Secret of Flight**

by

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

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.
