We show how the recently developed theory of geodesic transport barriers for fluid flows can be used to uncover key invariant manifolds in externally forced, one-degree-of-freedom mechanical systems. Specifically, invariant sets in such systems turn out to be shadowed by least-stretching geodesics of the Cauchy–Green strain tensor computed from the flow map(More)
We propose here the use of the variational level set methodology to capture Lagrangian vortex boundaries in 2D unsteady velocity fields. This method reformulates earlier approaches that seek material vortex boundaries as extremum solutions of variational problems. We demonstrate the performance of this technique for two different variational formulations(More)
