Frontiers of chaotic advection

Por • 13 mar, 2014 • Category: Leyes

We review the present position of and survey future perspectives in the physics of chaotic advection; the field that emerged three decades ago at the intersection of fluid mechanics and nonlinear dynamics, which encompasses a range of applications with length scales ranging from micrometers to hundreds of kilometers, including systems as diverse as mixing and thermal processing of viscous fluids, micro-fluidics, biological flows, and large-scale dispersion of pollutants in oceanographic and atmospheric flows.
