Motivation & Aim:The aim of the workshop is to introduce participants to the concepts of fluid flow instability. At the end of the workshop participants will be able to identify a flow stability phenomenon associated with a flow, formulate the flow stability problem, select appropriate method to solve it and finally interpret the results. The workshop will address topics associated with instability of fluid flows such as thermal instability, centrifugal instability, weakly nonlinear theory, nonlinear stability, turbulence, etc. Applications of flow istability to problems in porous media, biofluid, MHD, etc.. will also be discussed. The symposium will cover some of the recent research works on the topics discussed in the workshop.
