Floating particles that are initially distributed uniformly on the surface of a turbulent fluid, subsequently coagulate, until finally a steady state is reached. This being so, they manifestly form a compressible system. In this experiment, the information dimension D1, and the Lyapunov exponents of the coagulated floaters, is measured. The trajectories and… CONTINUE READING
