- The viscous vortex-wave system, BP.PD
### Abstract

The vortex-wave system is a mathematical model for the behavior of 2D incompressible flows in which the vorticity has a continuouly distributed part who interacts with small regions of concentrated vorticity. This is a version of vortex dynamics for ideal fluids, introduced by C. Marchioro and M. Pulvirenti in \cite{Marchioro-Pulvirenti}. The main purpose of this post-doctoral project i...

- Incompressible flow around an obstacle, BP.IC
### Abstract

In this project we intend to consider incompressible flows in the exterior of a planar obstacle. The main objective is to investigate the problem of the influence of the geometry of the obstacle on the flow exterior to it (curvature, convexity, etc), in the presence of a non-vanishing background constant velocity at infinity.
