Detection and Visualization of Vortices

  title={Detection and Visualization of Vortices},
  author={Ming Jiang and Raghu Machiraju and David Thompson},
In general, a feature can be defined as a pattern occurring in a dataset that is the manifestation of correlations among various components of the data. For many features that occur in scientific data, these correlations can be defined precisely. For other features, they are not well understood or do not lend themselves to precise definitions. Surprisingly, the swirling feature in flow fields, commonly refered to as a vortex, is an example of a feature for which a precise definition does not… CONTINUE READING
