Phase VS. Defect Turbulence in the 1D Complex Ginzburg-Landau Equation
The understanding of the dynamical properties of spatially extended systems remains a major challenge, in spite of some recent progress. In this paper, we will restrict ourselves to the very rich variety of cellular instabilities observed in hydrodynamic systems, such as the Taylor-Couette flow at moderate Taylor numbers, as discussed in this book. This is only one of many possible situations where the space-time dynamics leads to non trivial properties1.
