Computation of Decaying Turbulence in an Adaptive Wavelet Basis Computation of Decaying Turbulence in an Adaptive Wavelet Basis

The paper presents computations of decaying two{dimensional turbulence in an adaptive wavelet basis. At each time step the vorticity is represented by an adaptively selected set of wavelet functions which adjusts to the instantaneous distribution of vorticity. The results of this new algorithm are compared to a classical Fourier method and a Fourier method… (More)
