We are proud to announce that Professor Angelo Tafuni will be the featured speaker at cSplash 2018!

**Mathematics and Fluid Dynamics: A Special Bond**

__Title:____Fluids are everywhere. Air going through our nostrils, waves breaking on the shore, the hot plasma forming the stars in our universe, they are just a few examples of fluid flows. The mathematical equations governing the motion of a fluid are quite challenging. In many cases they do not have an exact solution. However, thanks to this complexity, the studying of fluid mechanics problems has given rise to several new ideas in mathematics, promoting breakthrough work in areas such as partial differential equations, computational methods, perturbation theory, etc. In our talk we will have a general understanding of how mathematics aids the modeling of fluid flow and what are some of the exemplary solutions to fluid dynamics problems.__
