Course Syllabus

List of participants


Šárka Nečasová is Head of the Department of Evolution DEs and Researcher in the Institute of Mathematics, Czech Academy of Sciences of the Czech Rep., Prague. She is a renowned expert in the mathematical theory of compressible fluid dynamics and fluid-structure interaction problems. She is a recipient of the Wichterle Prize (2003) awarded by the Academy of Science of the Czech Republic for young researches. She is the author/co-authors of more than 129 papers and several larger synthetic works (chapters in encyclopaedias) and one book.

Topics of lectures

  1. Viscous compressible Navier-Stokes-(Fourier) system coupled to the radiative transfer equation
  2. Motion of viscous compressible fluids in time dependent domains
  3. Motion of rigid body in viscous fluid

Who can apply ?

The course is aimed towards PhD students, postdocs and faculty who are working in the areas of PDE and its applications in fluid dynamics. The course will be at an advanced theoretical level and the participants will be expected to have basic knowledge in Sobolev Spaces, Functional Analysis and PDE.


A limited number of selected participants will be paid train fare and boarding/lodging during the period of the course.

How to apply ?
