Abstract:

I will outline the potential theoretic approach to solving the boundary value problems for the linearized fluid flow equations. The approach is based on the fundamental solution for these systems and involves deriving integral equations for the solution. The numerical implementation of these methods are now known as boundary integral element methods. I will begin by outlining the general approcah for the simple cases of boundary value problems for the Laplace equation and then the heat equation and then showing how these methods are used in the case of solving fluid mechanical problems.
