  • Comparing motion induction in lateral motion and motion in depth 

    Harris, Julie; German, KJ (2008-02) - Journal article
    Induced motion, the apparent motion of an object when a nearby object moves, has been shown to occur in a variety of different conditions, including motion in depth. Here we explore whether similar patterns of induced ...
  • Oscillator tunneling dynamics in the Rabi model 

    Irish, E. K.; Gea-Banacloche, J. (2014-02-21) - Journal article
    The familiar Rabi model, comprising a two-level system coupled to a quantum harmonic oscillator, continues to produce rich and surprising physics when the coupling strength becomes comparable to the individual subsystem ...
  • The persistence of balance in geophysical flows 

    Dritschel, David Gerard; Viudez, A (2007-01-10) - Journal article
    Rotating stably stratified geophysical flows can exhibit a near 'balanced' evolution controlled by the conservative advection of a single scalar quantity, the potential vorticity (PV). This occurs frequently in the Earth's ...
  • The quasi-geostrophic ellipsoidal vortex model 

    Dritschel, David Gerard; Reinaud, Jean Noel; McKiver, William J (2004-04-25) - Journal article
    We present a simple approximate model for studying general aspects of vortex interactions in a rotating stably-stratified fluid. The model idealizes vortices by ellipsoidal volumes of uniform potential vorticity, a materially ...
