i have been at work working all day on saturday and sunday (not to mention 3 all nighters the previous week). Surely there has to be more to life than staring at Monsieurs Navier and Stokes all day. So I decide to take a break and reply to Mustang's comment about Transport Phenomena (ofcourse!! i am reaching new heights in geekiness). It started to get longer and longer and longer, so I decided to write a post about it:
Mustang: My situation is not much better than yours - I bought BSL simply because I got too much grief from colleagues about not having my own copy! Navier-Stokes equations continue to be an enigma, and as I realize that I have been making a livelihood of those doods for so long now, I am reminded of a song from The Sound of Music ...
Perhaps I had a wicked childhood
Perhaps I had a miserable youth
But somwhere in my wicked, miserable past
There must have been a moment of truth
Nothing comes from nothing
Nothing ever could
So somewhere in my youth or childhood
I must have done something good
That seems to be the story of my association with N-S - there is no other explanation for me having survived thus far with transport phenomena ... and enjoyed it too!!
