Vorticity, Rotation and Symmetry (IV) – Complex Fluids and the Issue of Regularity
May 8 – 12, 2017

Vorticity, Rotation and Symmetry (IV) – Complex Fluids and the Issue of Regularity is part 4 of a series of previous conferences named
Vorticity, Rotation and Symmetry – Stabilizing and Destabilizing Fluid Motion
Vorticity, Rotation and Symmetry (II) – Regularity of Fluid Motion
Vorticity, Rotation and Symmetry (III) – Approaching Limiting Cases of Fluid Flow

These conferences took place at CIRM Luminy in 2008, 2011 and 2014, respectively, and have been very successful. This series of conferences on mathematical fluid dynamics has become worldwide-known and highly appreciated along with a similar conference series at MFO (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, Germany) and at the Banach Center in Bedlewo (Poland).

In contrast to the previous conferences this workshop will mainly focus on “complexity in fluid mechanics” and on the aspect of regularity in this context. In our proposal, complexity has two meanings, namely
• Problems related to complex models encountered in fluid mechanics:
Non-Newtonian fluids, mixtures and the huge variety of complex fluids (e.g. suspensions or polymeric fluids), analysis of two-phase flows (sharp or diffuse interface models), transport processes occurring at fluid interfaces, complex fluids with increasing levels of physico-chemical interface properties, radiative effects, etc.

• “Complex” behavior of classical fluid flow:
Behavior in a neighborhood of possible singularities in time or space-time, the open problem of regularity for Navier-Stokes equations, vortex stretching phenomena, special initial values e.g. with oscillating behavior, issue of regularity for non-Newtonian fluids, heat-conductive fluids, compressible fluids, etc.

The conference is intended to bring together internationally leading scientists from various branches of mathematical fluid dynamics, with focus on complex fluids and on the issue of regularity, but also young researchers from these fields. We are planning to publish the conference proceedings in a regular journal as we did for the last three conferences in this series.
