Eulerian Coordinates
</dt>
Any system of coordinates
in which properties of a fluid are
assigned to points in space at each given time, without attempt to identify
individual fluid
parcels from one time to the next. See equations
of motion. Compare Lagrangian
coordinates.
</dd>
Eulerian coordinates are to be distinguished from Lagrangian
coordinates. The particular coordinate system used to identify points in
space (Cartesian, cylindrical, spherical, etc.) is quite independent of
whether the representation is Eulerian or Lagrangian. [[/a>|/a>
