Abstract

Although creativity is often equated with art, it is just as present in science and technology. The Otto Laporte Lecture provides a forum to cover some of this ground-an opportunity to offer observations about scientific imagination, the role of collaborators and environment, creative processes in general, and even how science evolves. Very little has been written about these topics in the context of fluid dynamics, but I believe that such a viewpoint-understanding why and how scientific discoveries are made-provides significant insights which go far beyond my specific work.
