AIM-ED International Graduate School on Stability, Transition to Turbulence and Flow Control

AIM-ED International Graduate School on Stability, Transition to Turbulence and Flow Control

September 15-19, 2014, São Leopoldo – RS, Brazil.

The Advanced Instability Methods Education International Graduate School is aimed at PhD students in the broad areas of flow stability, transition to turbulence and flow control. It is based on the successful series of meetings of the Advanced Instability Methods (AIM) Network between 2009 and 2013, which were held at Cambridge - UK, Bangalore - India and Stockholm – Sweden, and provides graduate level courses in areas in which there is currently limited educational material. The 2014 edition of this event will take place at Unisinos - Universidade do Vale do Rio do Sinos, located in São Leopoldo, a beautiful city with German and Italian influences close to Porto Alegre. This AIM-ED course is offered as a part of an ERCOFTAC lecture series.

Renowned researchers attending the IUTAM-ABCM Symposium will be in charge of the courses, instructing students in solving problems through specific software, such as Matlab, in a hands-on activity. This event will be developed the week before the Brazilian Spring School on Transition and Turbulence (EPTT) which will happen at the same University. The school will not charge fees and some subsidized accommodations for students will be available.

 

Attendees:

Graduate students, researchers and professors in the broad areas of flow stability, transition to turbulence and control.

Pre-requisites:

Attendees will be expected to be familiar with complex numbers, matrices, operators and eigenvalues.
