Patterns and dynamics in reactive media by Rutherford Aris( Book )

7 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 155 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ever since the seminal works on traveling waves and morphogenesis by Fisher, by Kolmogorov, Petrovski and Piscunov, and by Turing, scientists from many disciplines have been fascinated by questions concerning the formation of steady or dynamic patterns in reactive media. Contributions to this volume have been made by chemists, chemical engineers, mathematicians (both pure and applied), and physicists. The topics covered range from reports of experimental studies, through descriptions of numerical experiments, to rather abstract theoretical investigations, each exhibiting different aspects of a very diverse field

Symmetry Breaking Bifurcations and the Growth of Chaos in a Rotating Fluid( Book )

2 editions published between 1988 and 1989 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Laboratory experiments and numerical simulation on flow between concentric independently rotating cylinders (the Couette-Taylor system) reveal a primary bifurcation to a new state, ribbons, which are traveling waves in the azimuthal direction but standing waves in the axial direction. Other experiments, conducted on a rigid rapidly rotating annulus, are designed to explore parameter regimes characteristics of planetary scale flows. Eastward jets are found to exhibit Rossby waves for a wide range of control parameters, and these jets (or, more precisely, the potential vorticity gradients in the core of the jets) act as a strong barrier to tracer transport; these observations have important implications for the transport of pollutants in oceans and the atmosphere. The behavior of westward jets is found to be markedly different from that of eastward jets. Keywords: Jupiter planet; Great red spot; Jet flow; Persistent vortices; Axisymmetric convection

Laboratory experiments on a zonal flow in a rotating annulus yielded insight into the phenomenon of blocking in the atmosphere (where the jet stream is deflected poleward by blocking anticyclones that persist for 10 days or longer). With two symmetric ridges on the bottom of the laboratory annulus, the resulting flows were nearly zonal at high forcing, blocked at low forcing, and intermittently switched between zonal and blocked flows at intermediate forcing. These observations provide new criteria by which topographic effects on low-frequency atmospheric flows can be distinguished from thermal effects. A model of one-dimensional random walks was examined in which the probability distribution functions for forward and backward steps were both power laws but with different exponents. Relations were derived between the exponent for the variance of the displacement and the exponents for the probability distribution functions for forward and backward steps and for sticking events. The results for this model agree with observations of tracer particles in a multi-vortex flow in a laboratory rotating annulus. Another study developed a genetic algorithm that produces neural feedback controllers for chaotic systems. The computer program to implement the algorithm is available on the World Wide Web at http://chaos.ph.utexas.edu/%5Eweeks/dsane
