Tangent double Hopf bifurcation in a differentially rotating cylinder flow.

Abstract

A tangent double Hopf bifurcation has been found in a rotating cylinder flow driven by the counter-rotation of the top endwall. The codimension-3 tangent double Hopf point has been located using linear stability analysis. The nonlinear analysis of the multiple solutions in a neighborhood of this bifurcation point is performed by numerical solutions of the… (More)
