Carolina Mathematics at the DFD meeting

Once again, the Department of Mathematics was well represented at the Division of Fluid Dynamics (DFD) meeting, held annually at the front of Thanksgiving week. Held this year in Pittsburgh, speakers from Carolina Mathematics (links click through to the abstracts of their talks) included faculty Roberto Camassa, Rich McLaughlin and Laura Miller; postdoctoral associate Shilpa Khatri; and graduate students Austin Baird, Nick Battistia, Alex Hoover, Shannon Jones, Jeff Olander and Chung-Nan Tzou. An assortment of Department alumni also presented, including Shengqian Chen, Nick Moore, Reed Ogrosky, Arvind Santhanakrishnan, Ashwin Vaidya and Longhua Zhao.

One of the long-running traditions of the DFD meeting is the Gallery of Fluid Motion. This year’s entries in the Gallery included “Broad leaves in strong flow”, from Laura Miller and Arvind Santhanakrishnan (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=myIiQvUvx18).

Congratulations to all involved in this year’s meeting.
