Horizon effects with surface waves on moving water
Surface waves on a stationary flow of water are considered in a linear model that includes the surface tension of the fluid. The resulting gravity-capillary waves experience a rich array of horizonExpand

Pattern formation in bubbles emerging periodically from a liquid free surface
Abstract.Patterns formed by centimeter scale bubbles on the free surface of a viscous liquid are investigated in a cylindrical container. These bubbles emerge periodically at the surface and interactExpand

On the electrodynamics of Minkowski at low velocities
The Galilean constitutive equations for the electrodynamics of moving media are derived for the first time. They explain all the historic and modern experiments which were interpreted so far in aExpand

Scattering of long water waves in a canal with rapidly varying cross-section in the presence of a current
The analytical study of long wave scattering in a canal with a rapidly varying cross-section is presented. It is assumed that waves propagate on a stationary current with a given flow rate. Due toExpand

Scattering of surface waves on an analogue black hole
We have realized a stationary transcritical flow of water in a flume that possesses the analogue of a black hole horizon for long-wavelength surface waves. The horizon has been probed via theExpand

Chaos in Robert Hooke's inverted cone
Robert Hooke is perhaps one of the first scientists to have met chaotic motions. Indeed, to invert a cone and let a ball move in it was a mechanical model used by him to mimic the motion of a planetExpand

Visco-elastic cosmology for a sparkling universe?
We show the analogy between a generalization of the Rayleigh–Plesset equation of bubble dynamics including surface tension, elasticity and viscosity effects with a reformulation of theExpand

On some applications of Galilean electrodynamics of moving bodies
We discuss the seminal article by Le Bellac and Levy-Leblond in which they identified two Galilean limits (called “electric” and “magnetic” limits) of electromagnetism and their implications. RecentExpand

The dual nature of the dead-water phenomenology: Nansen versus Ekman wave-making drags
Significance A ship evolving in a stratified fluid is sometimes slowed down in comparison to a homogeneous case. This dead-water phenomenon was reported by the Norwegian explorer Fridtjöf NansenExpand
