The major theme of the work of the asymptotics group was the investigation of strongly nonlinear stability problems using a combination of asymtotic and numerical methods. The flows investigated covered the whole of the speed range relevant to aerodynamics and were changed by an O(1) amount form their unperturbed state. The work complements some of the large scale numerical simulations going on at Langley and it is interesting to see, for example, that the hypersonic transition simulations of Pruett and Zang show many close similarities with the structures implied by vortex-wave interaction theory.
