Fluids Mechanics is the partition of physics which comprises the study of fluids and the forces on them. Fluid mechanics can be allocated into fluid statics is the study of fluids at rest; and fluid dynamics is the study of the effect of forces on fluid motion. It is a branch of continuum mechanics, a subject which models matter without using the information that it is made out of atoms; that is, it models matter from a macroscopic perspective rather than from microscopic. Fluid mechanics, especially fluid dynamics, is an active field of research with many problems that are partly or wholly unsolved.
This group deals with Harmonic Analysis, it is the branch of mathematics which deals with study of and generalization of the notation of Fourier series and Fourier transforms. The main objective of harmonic analysis is the representation of functions and signals as the superposition of basic waves. It has become a vast subject with applications in areas as diverse as signal processing, quantum mechanics, tidal analysis and neuroscience.
The propagation of mechanical disturbances in solids is of interest in many branches of the physical sciences and engineering. We aim to present an account of the theory of wave propagation in elastic solids. Wave propagation phenomena which are considered by the members of this group are radiation, reflections, refraction and influence of small deformation in terms of stress and heat propagation.
Digital image processing allows a much wider range of algorithms including different transforms like, wavelet transform, Fourier transform, and Fresnel transform to be applied to the input data and can avoid problems such as the build-up of noise and signal distortion during processing along with different application of encryption etc.
