Multi-parameter perturbation analysis of a second grade fluid flow past an oscillating infinite plate.
In this dissertation we consider the two dimensional flow of an incompressible and electrically conducting second grade fluid past a vertical porous plate with constant suction. The flow is permeated by a uniform transverse ...
Population dynamics based on the McKendrick-von Foerster model.
The current state of information concerning the classical model of deterministic, age-dependent population dynamics - the McKendrick von Foerster equation - is overviewed. This model and the related Renewal equation are ...
Applications of symmetry analysis to physically relevant differential equations.
We investigate the role of Lie symmetries in generating solutions to differential equations that arise in particular physical systems. We first provide an overview of the Lie analysis and review the relevant symmetry ...
Exact solutions for spherical relativistic models.
In this thesis we study relativistic models of gravitating uids with heat ow and electric charge. Firstly, we derive the model of a charged shear-free spherically symmetric cosmological model with heat ow. The ...
