Mathematical Geophysics: An introduction to rotating fluids and the Navier-Stokes equations

Jean-Yves Chemin, Benoit Desjardins, Isabelle Gallagher, and Emmanuel Grenier


Aimed at graduate students, researchers and academics in mathematics, engineering, oceanography, meteorology, and mechanics, this text provides a detailed introduction to the physical theory of rotating fluids, a significant part of geophysical fluid dynamics. The text is divided into four parts, with the first part providing the physical background of the geophysical models to be analyzed. Part two is devoted to a self contained proof of the existence of weak (or strong) solutions to the imcompressible Navier-Stokes equations. Part three deals with the rapidly rotating Navier-Stokes equat ... More
