Stability of the Couette flow at high Reynolds numbers in two dimensions and three dimensions

Jacob Bedrossian, Pierre Germain, Nader Masmoudi

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


We review works on the asymptotic stability of the Couette flow. The majority of this paper is aimed toward a wide range of applied mathematicians, and there is an additional section aimed toward experts in the mathematical analysis of PDEs.
