Scientific Achievements of N.D.Vvedenskaya, Related to the Work at Keldysh Institute of Applied Mathematics
2023, v.29, Issue 2, 151-157
N.D.~Vvedenskaya had a long and productive life. She was distinguished by the breadth of her mathematical interests and amazing diligence. The purpose of this review is to describe the part of Vvedenskaya's contribution to science that is connected to her work at the Keldysh Institute of Applied Mathematics (KIAM). Her influence on the development of the scientific results obtained in that period is also noted. The computational algorithms proposed by Vvedenskaya in the 1960s for solving problems in the theory of a laminar boundary layer and the results obtained have become widely cited classics. Her works with co-authors from KIAM on the problem of viscous incompressible fluid flows around bodies and on flows simulating atmospheric processes are the basis for further research and are widely acknowledged.
Keywords: finite difference, hyperbolic equations, numerical simulations, viscous fluid flows, obsticles, boundary layer, singular solution, localised vorticity
