Twisted vortex filaments in the three-dimensional complex Ginzburg-Landau equation.

The structure and dynamics of vortex filaments that form the cores of scroll waves in three-dimensional oscillatory media described by the complex Ginzburg-Landau equation are investigated. The study focuses on the role that twist plays in determining the bifurcation structure in various regions of the (alpha,beta) parameter space of this equation. As the… CONTINUE READING
