Suppose one is interested in the motion of a passive scalar in a fluid (e.g. dye, temperature, etc.) ... Evidently, aquot;structuresaquot; in the phase space of (3.1) should have some influence on the transport and mixing properties of the fluid. ... depends periodically on t, then the study of (3.2) can be reduced to the study of an area preserving Poincare map, as described in the ... Furthermore, one might guess that they have an important effect on the fluid mechanics. In particular, some questionsanbsp;...
