Transport and Mixing in Laminar Flows: From Microfluidics to Oceanic Currents

Front Cover
Roman Grigoriev
Wiley, Dec 19, 2011 - Technology & Engineering - 190 pages
This book provides readers from academia and industry with an up-to-date overview of important advances in the field, dealing with such fundamental fluid mechanics problems as nonlinear transport phenomena and optimal control of mixing at the micro- and nanoscale.
The editors provide both in-depth knowledge of the topic as well as vast experience in guiding an expert team of authors. The review style articles offer a coherent view of the micromixing methods, resulting in a much-needed synopsis of the theoretical models needed to direct experimental research and establish engineering principles for future applications.
Since these processes are governed by nonlinear phenomena, this book will appeal to readers from both communities: fluid mechanics and nonlinear dynamics.

About the author (2011)

Roman Grigoriev got his PhD at the California Institute of Technology and became a Research Associate at the University of Chicago before he moved to Georgia Tech. Professor Grigoriev's research on nonequilibrium systems such as fluids, lasers and living systems ranges from mixing in fluids, thin liquid films and wide aperture lasers to the heart muscle.

Heinz Georg Schuster is Professor of Theoretical Physics at the University of Kiel in Germany. He was a visiting professor at the Weizmann-Institute of Science in Israel and at the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, USA. He authored and edited many books on nonlinear phenomena and chaos control.
