The dynamics of transition from laminar to turbulent flows remains to this day a major challenge in theoretical and applied mechanics. The subject is of significance in diverse areas like gas turbines, underwater applications, flow control etc. This volume contains 67 papers on instabilities, transition, flow control, etc., of presentations made during the sixth IUTAM symposium on laminar-turbulent transition, Bangalore 2004. It thus equips the reader with the latest in research in this area.
