 After centuries of research, turbulence in fluids is still an unsolved problem. The graduatelevel lectures in this volume cover the state of the art of numerical methods for fluid mechanics. The research in this collection covers waveletbased methods, the semiLagrangian method, the Lagrangian multipole method, continuous adaptation of curvilinear grids, finite volume methods, shockcapturing methods, and ENO schemes. The most recent research on large eddy simulations and Reynolds stress modeling is presented in a way that is accessible to engineers, postdoctoral researchers, and graduate students. Applications cover industrial flows, aerodynamics, twophase flows, astrophysical flows, and meteorology. This volume would be suitable as a textbook for graduate students with a background in fluid mechanics. Titles in this series are copublished with the Centre de Recherches Mathématiques.
