Transition to Chaos in Non-Parallel Two-Dimensional Flow in a Channel
This paper is a review of some new work on an old problem. We shall first describe the origin of the problem, and then present a few snapshots of some of the solutions. Please forgive us for taking the snapshots from a parochial point of view, because this review is mostly of work done at Bristol.
