1992 - Fellow of American Physical Society (APS) Citation For contributions to the stabilitytheoretical interpretation of unsteady phenomena in shear flows and their control

- Quantum mechanics
- Mechanics
- Fluid dynamics

His primary areas of study are Mechanics, Instability, Classical mechanics, Reynolds number and Wake. His Mechanics study frequently draws parallels with other fields, such as Phase velocity. His Instability research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Two-dimensional flow, Group velocity, Inviscid flow and Vortex shedding.

Peter A. Monkewitz specializes in Classical mechanics, namely Shear flow. His Reynolds number research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Boundary layer thickness, Vortex and Pressure gradient. His Convection research integrates issues from Parallel flow, Hagen–Poiseuille equation and Stability theory.

- LOCAL AND GLOBAL INSTABILITIES IN SPATIALLY DEVELOPING FLOWS (1596 citations)
- Absolute and convective instabilities in free shear layers (653 citations)
- Wall-bounded turbulent flows at high Reynolds numbers: Recent advances and key issues (503 citations)

Peter A. Monkewitz spends much of his time researching Mechanics, Reynolds number, Turbulence, Classical mechanics and Instability. His study in Boundary layer, Boundary layer thickness, Wake, Jet and Vortex shedding falls under the purview of Mechanics. His study looks at the relationship between Reynolds number and topics such as Mathematical analysis, which overlap with Eigenfunction.

His research integrates issues of Logarithm, Scaling and Shear stress in his study of Turbulence. His studies examine the connections between Classical mechanics and genetics, as well as such issues in Flow visualization, with regards to Strouhal number. His Instability study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Transverse plane, Convection, Thermodynamics and Hagen–Poiseuille equation.

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Turbulence, Boundary layer, Shear velocity, Mechanics and Reynolds number. He combines subjects such as Classical mechanics and Shear stress with his study of Turbulence. His study in Boundary layer is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Finite thickness, Bounded function, Pressure gradient and Curvature.

Peter A. Monkewitz interconnects Plateau, Asymptotic expansion, Mathematical analysis, Pipe flow and Direct numerical simulation in the investigation of issues within Shear velocity. When carried out as part of a general Mechanics research project, his work on Linear stability is frequently linked to work in Diffusion, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study. His Reynolds number study incorporates themes from Statistical physics, Viscoelasticity, Turbulence kinetic energy and Dissipation.
