field analysis

) stress mechanics . Nemenyi was known for using what he called the inverse or semi-inverse approach, which applied vector field analysis (vector field), to obtain numerous exact solutions of the nonlinear equations of gas dynamics, many of them representing rotational flows of nonuniform total energy. In continuum mechanics, "Nemenyi's theorem" proves that, given any net of isothermal curves, there exists a five parameter family of plane stress systems for which these curves

'''Rijeka''' (

Historically, because of its strategic position and its excellent deep-water port (Port of Rijeka), the city was fiercely contested, especially among Italy, Hungary, and Croatia, changing hands and demographics many times over centuries. According to the 2011 census data (Demographics of Croatia), the overwhelming majority of its citizens (82.52%) are Croats, along with the important Bosniak (Bosniaks of Croatia), Italian (Italians of Croatia) and Serb (Serbs of Croatia) minorities.

Rijeka is the centre of Primorje-Gorski Kotar County. The city's economy largely depends on shipbuilding (shipyards "3. Maj" and "Viktor Lenac Shipyard") and maritime transport. Rijeka hosts the Croatian National Theatre (Croatian National Theatre in Rijeka) "Ivan pl. Zajc (Ivan Zajc)", first built in 1765, as well as the University of Rijeka, founded in 1973 but with roots dating back to 1632.

Apart from Croatian, the population also uses its own unique version of the Venetian language (Fiumano (Fiuman dialect)), with an estimated 20,000 speakers among the autochtone Croats and various minorities. Historically it served as a lingua franca for the many ethnicities inhabiting the multicultural port-town.
