Dear All,

There is a room change for the Boeing seminars series in the winter quarter.
It will now be in *134 Sieg Hall* (next to Guggenheim). An updated
announcement is below.

Sincerely,

Andrea Barreiro and Eli Shlizerman

Hello everyone and welcome back to a new quarter of exciting Boeing
seminars!

The first Boeing Distinguished Lecture of the quarter will take place this
Thursday, Jan. 14, at 4:00 pm in 134 Seig Hall.
Please join us for a reception afterwards on the 4th floor of Guggenheim.

"Heat Rises: Convection, Stability, and Turbulence"

Charles R. Doering
Department of Mathematics, Department of Physics,
and Center for the Study of Complex Systems, University of Michigan

Rayleigh-Bénard convection is the buoyancy-driven flow that results when a
fluid is heated from below and cooled from above sufficiently to destabilize
the conduction state where the fluid is at rest. A key experimental,
theoretical, and mathematical challenge is to ascertain the functional
dependence of the heat transport on the applied temperature drop and on the
material parameters characterizing the fluid. Turbulent convection is of
particular interest. In this talk we will review some of the history and
scientific applications of Rayleigh-Bénard convection, describe some theory
and analysis connecting notions of nonlinear stability to the statistical
dynamics of the highly unstable turbulent regime, and compare the results
with direct numerical simulations and laboratory experiments.
