Crouzeix's conjecture is among the most intriguing developments in matrix theory in recent years. Made in 2004 by Michel Crouzeix, it postulates that, for any polynomial p and any matrix A, ||p(A)|| <= 2 max(|p(z)|: z in W(A)), where the norm is the 2-norm and W(A) is the field of values (numerical range) of A, that is the set of points attained by v*Av for some vector v of unit length. Crouzeix proved in 2007 that the inequality above holds if 2 is replaced by 11.08, and very recently this was greatly improved by Palencia, replacing 2 by 1+sqrt(2).

The equations of fluid mechanics can be used to describe natural processes over a wide range of scales, from the behaviour of micro-organisms to astrophysics. Each of these processes is in turn often controlled by internal interactions on widely different scales. Numerical methods able to efficiently resolve these interactions are — in combination with theoretical analysis and lab experiments — an essential tool for advancing our understanding.
