## Announcements

An international team of mathematicians, led by UCSB Professor Björn Birnir, has published a complete mathematical description of boundary layer turbulence. The paper, published in the journal Physical Review Research, synthesizes decades of work on the topic to provide a mathematical formula describing the turbulance caused when flow of water, air, or other fluids interacts with a boundary such as a pipe wall or the surface of the earth. Boundary layer interactions are important to many scientific and engineering fields, from meteorology to optimizing the aerodynamics of cars and aircraft.

**VISITING POSITIONS:**One or more special one-year visiting assistant professorships may be available, with possibility of renewal for additional years, up to three years in total. These positions carry a teaching load of 4.5 one- quarter courses per year. Excellence in research, potential for interaction with faculty at UC Santa Barbara and evidence of (or potential for) good teaching are desired.
