The Scientific Papers of Sir Geoffrey Ingram Taylor (Aerodynamics and the Mechanics of Projectiles and Explosions)

Sir Geoffrey Ingram Taylor (1886-1975) used to be a physicist, mathematician and professional on fluid dynamics and wave idea. he's largely thought of to be one of many maximum actual scientists of the 20 th century. throughout those 4 volumes, released among the years 1958 and 1971, Batchelor has accumulated jointly nearly 2 hundred of Sir Geoffrey Ingram Taylor's papers.

Elements of Applied Bifurcation Theory

This can be a ebook on nonlinear dynamical structures and their bifurcations lower than parameter edition. It presents a reader with a high-quality foundation in dynamical structures idea, in addition to particular systems for software of common mathematical effects to specific difficulties. unique realization is given to effective numerical implementations of the constructed recommendations.

2. Substrate Coordinates For most applications in the literature of thin films and shallow layers, orthonormal coordinates have been the coordinates of choice. This is because the main substrate shapes that have been treated are planes, cylinders, and spheres, where orthonormal coordinates are readily available. For a general substrate shape, orthonormal coordinates are difficult to construct and require numerical integration. Singularities (umbilics) also cause problems. l4 For our application-flow down a curved substrate-the Monge representation of a surface15 is the most convenient.

In both cases the web has co-dimension two in the phase space. Keywords: Chaos; Stochastic web; Quasicrystal symmetry, Coupled oscillators. 1. Introduction Weak perturbation of integrable system that leads to interaction of the system’s degrees of freedom can generate in the phase space a thin net of channels inside of which trajectories are chaotic. The net is called stochastic web (SW), and its emergence is an important physical phenomenon that imposes the transport properties of systems. Arnold web is a paradigm example of the SW, and the corresponding transport is known as Arnold Arnold web is a universal characteristic of nonlinear systems.

Small-parameter Expansion Now we assume that the fluid layer is shallow, so that y is proportional to E . After replacing y by E Y , Eq. (14b) becomes + 2P + ~ - ~ ( d ~+c p ) ~2 9 .
