Liquid Layers, Capillary Interfaces and Floating Bodies

Small book cover: Liquid Layers, Capillary Interfaces and Floating Bodies

Liquid Layers, Capillary Interfaces and Floating Bodies
by

Publisher: Leipzig University
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.

Book cover: The Secret of SailingThe Secret of Sailing
by
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.
