**The Navier-Stokes equations and turbulent flows.**Do solutions of the Navier-Stokes equations develop a singularity in finite time? Since Leray suggested these singular solutions may signify the onset of turbulence in a*real*fluid flow, it is also an interesting engineering issue. This remains an important open problem and is currently one of the millenium prize problems set by the Clay Institute and worth a million dollars (see the criteria devised by Charles Fefferman). Also see the**LMS-EPSRC Short Course: Theoretical Fluid Dynamics**held at Heriot-Watt University: August 29th - September 2nd 2011.**Reaction-diffusion phenomena:**Travelling waves; Autocatalysis; Combustion.**Computational spectral theory:**Evans function; Geometric methods; Multi-dimensional stability.**Stochastic differential equations:**Efficient simulation; Algebraic structure; Heston model.
