primitive equations

[′prim·əd·iv i′kwā·zhənz]
(fluid mechanics)
The Eulerian equations of motion of a fluid in which the primary dependent variables are the fluid's velocity components; these equations govern a wide variety of fluid motions and form the basis of most hydrodynamical analysis; in meteorology, these equations are frequently specialized to apply directly to the cyclonic-scale motions by the introduction of filtering approximations.

Intended for atmospheric and oceanic systems researchers, the book examines nonlinear equations of atmospheric and oceanic movements, quasi-geostrophic models, global attractors of primitive equations, dynamical systems of the atmosphere and ocean, and stability and instability theory in relation to these complex systems.
