Model Equations for Quasi-Twodimensional Pattern Forming Systems
Institut für Theoretische Physik und Synergetik, Universität Stuttgart, Pfaffenwaldring 57/4, D-70550 Stuttgart
We present various model equations of the Swift-Hohenberg type for recent convection experiments in large aspect ratio systems.
PACS: 4725Q – Convection and heat transfer / 4730 – Rotational flow, vortices, buoyancy and other flows involving body forces / 0260 – Numerical approximation and analysis
Key words: convection / numerical analysis / rotational flow / quasi two dimensional pattern formation / Swift Hohenberg equation / convection / large aspect ratio systems / rotating flow
