PHYSICAL MATHEMATICS SEMINAR
TOPIC: NON-UNIFORM FLOW FROM A POINT SOURCE
SPEAKER: DR. VAKHTANG POUTKARADZE

ABSTRACT:
We consider a two-dimensional source of fluid in an infinite
plane. The Navier-Stokes equations in this setting admit exact
solutions. There is an infinity of solutions with velocity field being
periodic in the angular direction. We derive an exact condition for the
existence of these solutions and discuss their stability. The relevance
to experiments is discussed.
