Pattern formation

Selforganization, pattern formation, open system physics

Paper presents the lecture which was conducted for pupils on workshop «Nonlinear Days in Saratov for Youth – 2011». In the lecture brief introduction in physics of open systems is presented and several examples of process of selforganization and pattern formation in the systems of di?erent nature are discussed.

Dynamics of roll domains and the formation of structures of particles in parametric excitation of capillary waves

The proposed material is a review of the results of the study of the dynamics of roll domains of parametrically excited waves on the surface of the liquid. The processes of establishing regular wave patterns and structures from heavy particles produced by a field of standing waves are discussed from the standpoint of nonlinear dynamics. In experimental studies, carried out over the past few years, a number of interesting results concerning the dynamics of roll domains and the formation of structures of particles at parametric excitation of capillary waves were obtained.
