Abstract : The research activities focused on three areas. The first area is the study of liquid crystal polymers in certain confined and free geometries. The second is a study of the interfacial instability for layered viscoelastic fluids governed by Johnson-Segalman constitutive equations. The third is the development of ENO schemes for a compressible Maxwell model which exhibits pure hyperbolicity at all flow configurations.
