Stochastic Geometric Models with Non-stationary Spatial Correlations in Lagrangian Fluid Flows

Inspired by spatiotemporal observations from satellites of the trajectories of objects drifting near the surface of the ocean in the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s “Global Drifter Program”, this paper develops data-driven stochastic models of geophysical fluid dynamics (GFD) with non-stationary spatial correlations representing the dynamical behaviour of...

Un-reduction in field theory

The un-reduction procedure introduced previously in the context of classical mechanics is extended to covariant field theory. The new covariant un-reduction procedure is applied to the problem of shape matching of images which depend on more than one independent variable (for instance, time and an additional labelling parameter). Other possibilities are also explored: nonlinear...

Noise and Dissipation on Coadjoint Orbits

We derive and study stochastic dissipative dynamics on coadjoint orbits by incorporating noise and dissipation into mechanical systems arising from the theory of reduction by symmetry, including a semidirect product extension. Random attractors are found for this general class of systems when the Lie algebra is semi-simple, provided the top Lyapunov exponent is positive. We study...

Multipole Vortex Blobs (MVB): Symplectic Geometry and Dynamics

Vortex blob methods are typically characterized by a regularization length scale, below which the dynamics are trivial for isolated blobs. In this article, we observe that the dynamics need not be trivial if one is willing to consider distributional derivatives of Dirac delta functionals as valid vorticity distributions. More specifically, a new singular vortex theory is...

The Effect of Subfilter-Scale Physics on Regularization Models

The subfilter-scale (SFS) physics of regularization models are investigated to understand the regularizations’ performance as SFS models. Suppression of spectrally local SFS interactions and conservation of small-scale circulation in the Lagrangian-averaged Navier-Stokes α-model (LANS-α) is found to lead to the formation of rigid bodies. These contaminate the superfilter-scale...
