This page includes some supplementary movies and figures to accompany research with Rich Kerswell on periodic orbits embedded in chaotic flows.
Details on the dynamical systems approach to turbulence be found in our paper (and references therein):
Movies showing the evolution for vorticity for 2D Kolmogorov flow on the periodic torus.
These correspond to the recurrent flows extracted from transient ‘P1’ chaos at Re=30.
For further details on these spatiotemporal states please see our first paper and movies here
