Course Description
Vorticity is a measure of the spinning motion of a fluid. Understanding the sources, dynamics and structure of vorticity, in particular the interaction of vortices is of key importance in fluid mechanics. The course will cover a range of topics related to vortical flow, spanning from fundamental aspects to engineering applications. The programme is not finalized yet, but the following topics are expected to be covered:

Further details will follow soon.
