He said he cannot do it, has 15 min/week for research, but that it will take us 3 days to learn how to do it ourselves. It is done with IBM'​s ​[[http://​www.opendx.org/|openDX.org]]. More info [[:​gtspring2009:​spieker_blog:​itano|here]]
-\\ +  - **most profound:** [John 2009-07-08, 2009-10-09] [[research:​gibson:​wallsolns|Try to find near-wall solutions]]. Basic idea is to add a pressure gradient to plane Couette flow to break the sigma_x symmetry ​and make the mean flow profile look more like the mean flow profile in the near-wall region ​of a turbulent channel flow. That would give you pseudo boundary layer solutions (i.e. solutions that roughly fit the mean-flow profile of a boundary layer, but have a Dirichlet boundary condition on the upper surface). Then you rachet up the Reynolds number and pressure gradient in order to make the total domain larger and larger, relative to the near wall region. Eventually you have solutions living in the high-gradient near-wall region of a boundary layer, with the Dirichlet boundary condition far away.

Reason: number of groups (Nagata, Botero, Kawahara, etc - see [[http://​chaosbook.org/​library/​index.html#​etc12_proceed|Marburg turbulence conference ETC12 proccedings]]) are repeating plane Couette kind of investigations for the duct problem. None of them have worked detailed group theory, or the state space visualizations. For us it is simpler than the pipe, as there is only one, streamwise continuous symmetry, and I believe it is pure //SO(2)// , not  //​O(2)//​. ​ --- //​[[predrag.cvitanovic@physics.gatech.edu|Predrag Cvitanovic]] 2009-09-26 13:44//
   - Search for **new heteroclinic connections**,​ particularly connections to solutions with greater than 1d unstable manifolds. Get a start on this by expanding the existing heteroclinic connections. The EQ4 to EQ1 connection can be extended to a 2d sheet by perturbing along a third real-unstable S-symmetric eigenfunction. Could also explore the possibility of hitting the different translational phases of the EQ1  from EQ4 by perturbing the  existing heteroclinic connection with S-antisymmetric eigenfunctions. ​   - Search for **new heteroclinic connections**,​ particularly connections to solutions with greater than 1d unstable manifolds.

   - **numerical/​programming,​ important:​** implement an automated continuation system for solutions as a function of parameter (Re, Lx, Lz). This would involve doing a little literature review on continuation algorithms and then implementing an algorithm and hooking it into channelflow'​s solution-finding code.   - **numerical/​programming,​ important:​** implement an automated continuation system for solutions as a function of parameter (Re, Lx, Lz).
