We will survey a class of efficient high order finite
difference schemes and finite element methods for viscous incompressible
flows suitable for the computation of flows at very high Reynolds numbers
and complicated geometry. The viscous term is treated explicitly and a high
order local vorticity boundary formula is used. The main computation is
reduced to solving a stan-dard Poisson equation at each time step. We will
present computations using the above methods for such problems as the
backward-facing step flow with 500
