Professor Emeritus Marshall Slemrod has been researching how the equations map to various type of conditions. “Navier-Stokes makes very good predictions for the air in the room,” said Slemrod, who presented the evidence last month in the journal Mathematical Modelling of Natural Phenomena. But at high altitudes, and in other near-vacuum situations, “the equations become less and less accurate." Read more at https://www.quantamagazine.org/famous-fluid-equations-are-incomplete-20150721/
