One of the ubiquitous features of real-life turbulent flows is the existence and persistence of coherent vortices. Here we show that such coherent vortices can be extracted as clusters of Lagrangian trajectories. We carry out the clustering on a weighted graph, with the weights measuring pairwise distances of fluid trajectories in the extended phase space of positions and time. We then extract coherent vortices from the graph using tools from spectral graph theory. Our method locates all… 
A Fourier approach to Lagrangian vortex detection.
It is revealed that coherent vortices can be identified based on the frequency-domain representation of Lagrangian trajectories based on Fourier analysis to convert particles' trajectories from their time domain to a presentation in the frequency domain.
Defining Lagrangian coherent vortices from their trajectories
We study the transport properties of mesoscale eddies (i.e., vortices of 100–200 km in diameter) over a finite time duration. While these oceanic structures are well-known to stir and mix surrounding
Particle clustering and subclustering as a proxy for mixing in geophysical flows
Abstract. The Eulerian point of view is the traditional theoretical and numerical tool to describe fluid mechanics. Some modern computational fluid dynamics codes allow for the efficient simulation
Evolutionary clustering of Lagrangian trajectories in turbulent Rayleigh-Bénard convection flows.
We explore the transport mechanisms of heat in two- and three-dimensional turbulent convection flows by means of the long-term evolution of Lagrangian coherent sets. They are obtained from the
Clustering-based threshold estimation for vortex extraction and visualization
Tested on several flows in various size and Reynolds number, the results of the threshold estimation confirmed overcoming the sensitivity of the maxima score approach, indicating a potential of the thresholds estimation to improve the robustness of the approach for vortex extraction and visualization.
Spatio-temporal organization of dynamics in a two-dimensional periodically driven vortex flow: A Lagrangian flow network perspective.
A directed network is constructed that describes the exchange of mass between distinct regions of the flow domain using a discrete approximation of the system's transfer operator and is able to delimit co-existing flow regimes with different dynamics.
Spectral Early-Warning Signals for Sudden Changes in Time-Dependent Flow Patterns
Lagrangian coherent sets are known to crucially determine transport and mixing processes in non-autonomous flows. Prominent examples include vortices and jets in geophysical fluid flows. Coherent
Identification of individual coherent sets associated with flow trajectories using coherent structure coloring.
The method uses the Coherent Structure Coloring vector and associated eigenvectors to analyze the distance in higher-dimensional eigenspace between a selected reference trajectory and other tracer trajectories in the flow to identify the coherent structure of which the reference particle is a member.
A clustering-based approach to vortex extraction
A novel vortex extraction method by employing a machine learning clustering algorithm to identify and locate vortical structures in complex flow fields by choosing an objective, physically based metric that describes the vortex-like behavior of intricate flow and normalizes the metric for applying on different flow fields.

What is ergodic theory
Ergodic theory involves the study of transformations on measure spaces. Interchanging the words “measurable function” and “probability density function” translates many results from real analysis to
Matrix analysis
This new edition of the acclaimed text presents results of both classic and recent matrix analyses using canonical forms as a unifying theme, and demonstrates their importance in a variety of applications.
The Non-Linear Field Theories Of Mechanics
Matter is commonly found in the form of materials. Analytical mechanics turned its back upon this fact, creating the centrally useful but abstract concepts of the mass point and the rigid body, in
It is still unknown whether there are families of tight knots whose lengths grow faster than linearly with crossing numbers, but the largest power has been reduced to 3/z, and some other physical models of knots as flattened ropes or strips which exhibit similar length versus complexity power laws are surveyed.
