Abstract:

This project was a Joint Research Project in the study of Pattern Formation and Chaotic Dynamics by members of the Institute for Applied Physics IPFAN in Gorky, USSR and the Marine Physical Laboratory, at the University of California, San Diego, USA. this project involved both experimental and theoretical research in the topic of interest. At both IPFAN and UCSD the scientists named have investigated the creation of patterns in spatio-temporal systems and the chaotic dynamics of these systems in several specific examples 1 Dynamics of Surface Waves, Variation on the classical Faraday Experiment 2 Surface tension induced convection, Benard-Marangoni Convection 3 Vortex Generation in the wakes of bluff bodies and 4 Boundary Layer Chaos and Transition in Turbulence.
