Pattern Formations and Oscillatory Phenomena

Patterns and their formations appear throughout nature, and are studied to analyze different problems in science and make predictions across a wide range of disciplines including biology, physics, mathematics, chemistry, material science, and nanoscience. With the emergence of nanoscience and the ability for researchers and scientists to study living systems at the biological level, pattern formation research has become even more essential. This book is an accessible first of its kind guide for scientists, researchers, engineers, and students who require a general introduction to this research area, in order to gain a deeper analytical understanding of the most recent observations and experiments by top researchers in physics. Pattern Formations describes the most up-to-date status of this developing field and analyzes the physical phenomena behind a wide range of interesting topics commonly known in the scientific community. The study of pattern formations as a research field will continue to grow as scientists expand their understanding of naturally occurring patterns and mimic nature to help solve complex problems. This research area is becoming more highly recognized due to its contributions to signal processing, computer analysis, image processing, complex networks development, advancements in optics and photonics, crystallography, metallurgy, drug delivery (chemotherapy) and the further understanding of gene regulation. The only introductory reference book which places special emphasis on the theoretical analyses of experiments in this rapidly growing field of pattern formation A wide range of physical applications make this book highly interdisciplinary Explanations of observations and experiments deepen the readers understanding of this developing research field

In this chapter, temporal and spatial patterns observed in the Belousov–Zhabotinsky (BZ) reaction are described, which is a typical nonlinear chemical reaction system that exhibits oscillation and wave propagation. Some related phenomena in biological systems are presented. The underlying mechanism and modeling of oscillation based on chemical equations are then introduced. Reaction diffusion equations are derived and numerical simulations are performed based on the model to explain how the dynamical pattern appears. Finally, synchronous phenomena observed in the BZ

Systems exhibiting spontaneous regular rhythms abound in nature, and several that are characterized by more than two different time scales are known as relaxation oscillators. The density oscillator is an excellent model system for investigating the fundamental mechanisms of relaxation oscillators. It is a system consisting of an inner container, with a thin pipe in its bottom and filled with heavy fluid, inside an outer container filled with light fluid; the fluids alternately exhibit upflow and downflow through the pipe

Some bird and insect species exhibit iridescent colors that originate from submicron microstructures. One example is a periodic stack of thin layers that selectively reflects light wavelengths with high efficiency through multilayer optical interference. However, the periodicity of the microstructure is not a unique factor in the coloration mechanism; other physical factors such as structural irregularities, large-scale structures, and pigmentation also contribute greatly to the coloration in natural examples. This chapter describes basic experimental and theoretical methods of studying structural

Submicron-sized colloidal particles dispersed in a liquid medium self-assemble to form ordered “crystal” structures in which the particles are regularly arranged in body-centered or face-centered cubic lattice structures. Colloidal crystals have been useful models for studying crystallization in general. They have also attracted considerable attention as novel materials. In this chapter, we describe the physical basis and experimental studies of colloidal crystallization, in particular those of charged colloids. We first present a general introduction to the physical background on the

Containing illustrations, worked examples, graphs and tables, this book deals with periodic precipitation (also known as Liesegang Ring formation) in terms of mathematical models and their logical consequences, and is entirely concerned with microcomputer analysis and software development. Three distinctive periodic precipitation mechanisms are included: binary diffusion-reaction; solubility modulation, and competitive particle growth. The book provides didactic illustrations of a valuable investigational procedure, in the form of hypothetical experimentation by microcomputer. The development of appropriate software is described and the

This book addresses topics of mobile multi-agent systems, pattern formation, biological modelling, artificial life, unconventional computation, and robotics. The behaviour of a simple organism which is capable of remarkable biological and computational feats that seem to transcend its simple component parts is examined and modelled. In this book the following question is asked: How can something as simple as Physarum polycephalum - a giant amoeboid single-celled organism which does not possess any neural tissue, fixed skeleton or organised musculature -

Originating from contributions to a discussion of the Royal Society. Convection in fluids associated with gradients in surface tension, whether associated with pressure or concentration gradients, has been studied for over a century. There has been a growing awareness of the significance of the Marangoni effect in a wide range of materials processes, in particualr liquid metal processing (steelmaking, welding, joining, coating, secondary melting). The meeting brought together leading scientists who are elucidating the fundamental aspects of the effect.
