Homoclinic bifurcations in a liquid crystal flow

  • T. PEACOCK (a1) (a2) and T. MULLIN (a1)
  • Published online: 01 June 2001

The results of an experimental study of electrohydrodynamic convection in a liquid crystal are presented. Investigations concerned a small-aspect-ratio device so that finite geometry effects could be exploited to study the mechanisms by which complicated flows were organized. The results have been related to ideas on Shil'nikov dynamics and gluing bifurcations in low-dimensional dynamical systems.
