Time Evolution Equation Approach to Solve the Navier-Stokes Equation

Amador Muriel, Ph.D.

Special Colloquium on Friday, April 6, 2018 at 3 pm in Harvill 318

Muriel will summarize his work on the Navier-Stokes equation to explain his time evolution equation approach to produce exact solutions of NSE.

Amador Muriel, Ph.D., Stony Brook 1967, gave up tenure from CUNY in 1972  to pursue two major activities: run his IT company from Geneva and pursue his research on his quantum theory of turbulence,  summarized in a collection of published papers,  Quantum Theory of Turbulence, Harvard Book Store (2000). Turbulence experts told him that turbulence will be explained by then undiscovered or unknown solutions of the Navier-Stokes equation. So he started looking at the Navier-Stokes equation. In 2011, he published his existence proof of solutions of NSE, arriving at several other exact solutions later from 2011 to 2016. His works convinced him that turbulence cannot be explained by NSE, and has since resumed developing his quantum theory of turbulence. The talk will be on solutions of NSE.  His works (available from Researchgate) were developed by several visits to academic centers: The Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton; Max Planck Institute, Dresden; CERN, Geneva; Harvard University, Columbia University and Hongkong University for Science and Technology.  He is now completing his latest book, Exact Solutions of the Navier-Stokes Equation and Quantum Theory of Turbulence.
