Flow Domains and Bases

  • Wolfgang KollmannEmail author


A set of simple flow domains\(\mathcal{D}\) relevant to turbulent flows and Schauder bases (Sect.  23.8 in Appendix A) for the phase space \(\Omega \) of functions defined on a domain \(\mathcal{D}\) of particular structure and its dual space \(\mathcal{N}\) called test function space are introduced for later use. A fundamental tool for operations in Banach and Hilbert spaces is the notion of a Schauder basis.
