Abstract: The lecture provides some examples of successful application of fluid mechanics methods and approaches for predictive mathematical modeling of basic processes in nature, technology and social aspects, in particular:

1. Global processes in the Universe: formation of supernovae, interactions of molecular clouds;

2. Ecology of near-Earth space, ensuring flight safety;

3. Modeling of processes in power plants and engines of various types;

4. Modeling the effectiveness of fire and explosion safety measures;

5. Predictive modeling of traffic flows, evaluation of the effectiveness of various control strategies.


Bio: Nikolaj N. Smirnov is a professor at the Department of Gas and Wave Dynamics of Lomonosov Moscow State University since 1994. He graduated from the Faculty of Mechanics and Mathematics of MSU in 1976 and became Doctor of Physical and Mathematical Sciences in 1990. Prof. Smirnov is the Corresponding Member of the Russian Academy of Natural Sciences (1998), a member of the Combustion Institute (1992), a member of the Russian National Committee on Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (2001), a member of the International Academy of Astronautics (2005). He was awarded the M.V.Keldysh Medal and the S.P.Korolev Medal (Federation of Astronautics of Russia).

Research interests: dynamics of physically and chemically transforming multiphase media, fundamental problems of ecology, mathematical modeling of the evolution of space debris, and traffic flow. He has published over 200 scientific papers. 15 Ph.D. and 2 doctoral dissertations were defended under his supervision.
