Dynamic isoperimetry and the geometry of Lagrangian coherent structures

Gary Froyland
2015 Nonlinearity  
The computational advantages of our new approach are a well-separated spectrum for the dynamic Laplacian, and flexibility in appropriate numerical approximation methods.  ...  We formulate and prove dynamic versions of the fundamental (static) isoperimetric (in)equalities; a dynamic Federer-Fleming theorem and a dynamic Cheeger inequality.  ...  In nonlinear fluid flow, such sets characterise finite-time coherent sets, as their boundaries do not elongate and filament, and there is little exchange between the interior and exterior of these sets  ...

Coherent Decay of Bose-Einstein Condensates

George E. Cragg, Arthur K. Kerman
2007 Physical Review Letters  
As a signature of this phenomenon, there arises a complex chemical potential in which the imaginary part quantifies a coherent decay into collective phonon excitations of a collapsing ground state.  ...  The unique decay rate dependencies on both the scattering length and the density can be experimentally tested by tuning near a Feshbach resonance.  ...  Ψ(ξ * ) is the projection of |Ψ onto the coherent space.  ...
