Blending tactics happen in numerous technological and normal purposes, with size and time scales starting from the very small - as in microfluidic purposes - to the very huge - for instance, blending within the Earth's oceans and surroundings. the range of difficulties may give upward thrust to a range of ways. Are there thoughts which are principal to them all? Are there instruments that permit for prediction and quantification?The authors express how more than a few flows in very diversified settings - micro to macro, fluids to solids - own the attribute of streamline crossing, a significant kinematic function of 'good mixing'. This proposal may be put on a company mathematical footing through associated twist maps (LTMS), that are the valuable organizing precept of this book.The authors speak about the definition and building of LTMS, supply examples of particular structures that may be analysed within the LTM framework and introduce a few mathematical strategies - non-uniform hyperbolicity and tender ergodic idea - that are then dropped at endure at the challenge of fluid blending. In a last bankruptcy, they argue that the research of associated twist maps opens the door to a plethora of a brand new investigations, either from the viewpoint of uncomplicated arithmetic in addition to new purposes, and current a few open difficulties and new instructions. as a result, this booklet could be of curiosity to a vast spectrum of readers, from natural and utilized mathematicians, to engineers, physicists and geophysicists.

These court cases acquire the papers accredited for presentation on the bien nial IMA convention at the arithmetic of Surfaces, held within the collage of Cambridge, 4-7 September 2000. whereas there are lots of overseas con ferences during this fruitful borderland of arithmetic, special effects and engineering, this can be the oldest, the main common and the single one to concen trate on surfaces. participants to this quantity come from twelve diverse nations in european rope, North the United States and Asia. Their contributions replicate the large range of present-day functions which come with modelling components of the human physique for clinical reasons in addition to the construction of vehicles, airplane and engineer ing parts. a few purposes contain layout or development of surfaces by means of interpolating or approximating information given at issues or on curves. Others examine the matter of 'reverse engineering'-giving a mathematical descrip tion of an already developed item. we're relatively thankful to Pamela Bye (at the Institue of Mathemat ics and its functions) for help make preparations; Stephanie Harding and Karen Barker (at Springer Verlag, London) for publishing this quantity and to Kwan-Yee Kenneth Wong (Cambridge) for his heroic support with com piling the lawsuits and for facing a variety of technicalities coming up from huge and diverse laptop records. Following this Preface is an inventory of the programme committee who with the aid of their colleagues did a lot paintings in refereeing the papers for those proceedings.
