The articles in this volume cover recent work in the area of flow control from the point of view of both engineers and mathematicians. These writings are especially timely, as they coincide with the emergence of the role of mathematics and systematic engineering analysis in flow control and optimization. Recently this role has significantly expanded to the point where now sophisticated mathematical and computational tools are being increasingly applied to the control and optimization of fluid flows. These articles document some important work that has gone on to influence the practical, everyday design of flows; moreover, they represent the state of the art in the formulation, analysis, and computation of flow control problems. This volume will be of interest to both applied mathematicians and to engineers.
