LaMaGa: Passive scalar field

Subject: Fluid mechanics.

Explanation: A 2D scalar field advected by a turbulent velocity field created by a set of vortices in interaction, as described by Chorin.

Bibliography: Chorin's model of vortices appears in detail in "Alexandre J. Chorin, Vorticity and turbulence, Springer (1994)". The application to passive scalar fields is an idea of A. Degenhard and J. Rodríguez-Laguna, unpublished yet.

Software: Program written by A. Degenhard and J. Rodríguez-Laguna, you may ask the web-admin for a copy.
