The quest to observe the Turbulent Cascade in real time

Speaker: Michael Brenner, Applied Mathematics, Harvard University
Location: Guggenheim 133 (Lees-Kubota Lecture Hall)

I'll talk about theory, simulations and experiments aimed at uncovering the time dynamics of the turbulent cascade. We focus on the collision between two vortex rings, and will present two iterative mechanisms for generating turbulence, one based on iterated crow instabilities and another based on iterated elliptical instabilities.
