Fundamental theories and analysis methods in microscale fluid mechanics and its applications will be lectured. Fluid is treated
as continuous media in the lecture. Surface tension effect is reviewd because it is remarkable when the liquid-gas interface
exists in microscale. Method of Stokes flow approximation and technique of potential flow theory will be lectured, as they
are very useful in analyzing the flow in microscale environment. As the application examples, micromixing, Marangoni effect,
mass transfer and electromagnetic effect will be introduced. Student's summary material from the given handout material will
be read by them at first, and then the comments and detailed explanation will be offered by the lecturer.

To obtain basic knowledge about microscale fluid mechanics and to study typical expample in its application.

- To learn the basics of Stokes flow approximation theory.
- To learn the technique of potential flow theory for microscale.
- To review the surface tension effect and its analysis method.
- To obtain basic knowledge of the related applications.
