The objective of this book is to present a unified treatment of the mixing of fluids from a kinematical viewpoint. The aim is to provide a conceptually clear basis from which to launch analysis, and to facilitate the understanding of the numerous mixing problems encountered in nature and technology. Chapter 1 is a visual summary to motivate the rest of the presentation. Chapter 2 highlights the relationships between dynamical systems and kinematics, as well as the usefulness of studying fluid dynamics starting with the notions of motion and flow. Chapter 3 is a brief, conventional study of fluid dynamics which stresses conceptual points required in the rest of the work. Chapters 5 and 6 give a dynamic systems presentation, including useful topics in mixing studies.(L.S.G)
