Volker Bach, Mainz that flow equations were also developed by the mathematicians Roger W. Brockett, Harvard and by Moody T. Chu, NCSU, and Kenneth R. Driessel, Univ. of Wyoming.
The most important of these come from the fact that this equation is equivalent to a certain gradient flow on the space of orthogonal matrices.
The flow approach has potential applications ranging from new development of numerical algorithms to the theoretical solution of open problems.

The evolution of hydraulic conductivity and flow patterns, controlled by simultaneous precipitation and dissolution in porous rocks, was examined in a series of laboratory experiments.
Because the dissolution of calcium carbonate is a mass-transfer limited process, higher flow rates cause a more rapid dissolution of the porous medium; in such cases, with dissolution dominating, highly conductive flow wormholes were observed to develop.

 Science Fair Projects - Isospectral
In mathematics, two linear operators are called isospectral if they have the same spectrum.
In the case of operators on infinite-dimensional spaces, the spectrum need not consist solely of isolated eigenvalues; the rest of this article will assume for clarity that we are talking about operators on finite-dimensional vector spaces.
In that case, for complex square matrices, the relation of being isospectral for two diagonalizable matrices is just similarity.

Various other problems of interest, such as isospectrality (which relates to the question- "Can one hear the shape of a graph?"), quantum irreversibility (dephasing) and nodal structures of wave functions on graphs are also studied.

Recall that the {\it stable} and {\it unstable distributions} participate in the definition of an Anosov flow \cite{An}.
In the case of a smooth Anosov flow, these distributions are absolutely continuous \cite{An} and H\"older-continuous \cite{AS} but in general they are not smooth.
In the case of an $ n $-dimensional Anosov manifold $ M $, the stable and unstable distributions are defined on the manifold $ \Omega M $ of unit tangent vectors.

Examples include, among others, isospectral deformations arising from the representation theoretic techniques of Lecture 3, new examples of isospectral deformations constructed by R. Gornet by different methods, and isospectral nilmanifolds with different local geometry (to be discussed in lecture 8).
We exhibit a pair of flat bordered surfaces which are isospectral for the Neumann boundary conditions, one of which is orientable while the other is nonorientable.
The surfaces are constructed using the orbifold version of Sunada's theorem, and Neumann isospectrality is verified explicitly by transplantation of eigenfunctions.

This paper presents the most general form for isospectral flows of linear dynamic systems of orders p=2,3,4, and the forms for isospectral flows for even higher order systems are evident from the patterns emerging.
Based on the definition of a class of coordinate transformations called structure-preserving transformations, the concept of isospectrality and the associated flows is seen to extend to cases where m does not equal n.

 Advances in Computation: Theory and Practice, Book Series, Volume 4, Abstracts
In this paper a technique based on isospectral flows is introduced to compute the eigenvalues of displacement structured matrices.
The flow starting from a matrix with a given displacement structure is enforced to preserve that structure, by adding a suitable constraint to the classical formulation.
In particular, existence and uniqueness of the flow is proven, under the assumption that the starting matrix is sufficiently close to the kernel of the appropriate displacement operator.

Time and brain permitting it would be nice to see a glimpse of the "spectral curve" and the associated algebraic integrable system for these flows and observe the relationship with "finite type" solutions for a discrete version of the KdV system.
In particular, it seems that a new approach is needed to explore this relationship in the presence of large isometry groups.
After reviewing the isospectral problem and techniques for constructing isospectral manifolds, we will discuss progress the speaker and Alejandro Uribe have made in understanding whether isospectral manifolds constructed via the so-called torus method have the same length spectrum.

Although some results exist about isospectral graphs and spectral asymptotics, this seems like a rich enough set of examples to warrant further exploration.
Abstract: The lecture explains how the geometry of necks in a hypersurface can be controlled by a priori estimates for the curvature and then gives an explicit surgery construction.
Finally it is shown how the surgery can be used to extend mean curvature flow beyond singularities for hypersurfaces with the sum of the two lowest principal curvature positive everywhere.

A number of examples of Hamiltonian systems that are integrable by classical means are cast within the framework of isospectral flows in loop algebras.
Integrable Hamiltonians are obtained by restriction of elements of the ring of spectral invariants to the image of these moment maps.
The isospectral property follows from the Adler-Kostant-Symes theorem, and gives rise to invariant spectral curves.

 Flow Equations for Hamiltonians   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
The method of flow equations is a non-perturbative method that can be used to diagonalize, block-diagonalize or renormalize a given Hamiltonian.
The flow equation desribes the flow of a Hamiltonian H as a function of the flow-parameter l and has the form dH(l)/dl = [η(l),H(l)], where the generator η(l) of the unitary transformation has typically the form η(l)=[H(l),X].
Meanwhile (2002) we have learned from Volker Bach, that such a method called double bracket flow and isospectral flow, resp., has also been developed by the mathematicians Roger W. Brockett, Moody T. Chu, and Kenneth R. Driessel.

The isospectral problem and Korteweg-deVriess flow arising from complex-valued initial data was studied in the 1980's, marking the starting point for this research.
This approach promises to be a powerful tool for tackling some of the open problems in the field, such as practical computation of band edges (by reduction to a linear algebraic eigenvalue problem) and the classification of isospectral manifolds of elliptic finite- gap potentials.
Moreover it sheds light on an unexpected relationship between spectral properties in the algebraic as well as in the functional analytic sense of differential operators and global analytic properties of solutions of the associated differential equations.

 Search Results for Conformal
The Ruth Lyttle Satter Prize is awarded to Sun-Yung Alice Chang for her deep contributions to the study of partial differential equations on Riemannian manifolds and in particular for her work on extremal problems in spectral geometry and the compactness of isospectral metrics within a fixed conformal class on a compact 3-manifold.
We have also applied this approach in conformal geometry to the isospectral compactness problem on 3-manifolds when the metrics are restricted in any given conformal class.
After considering the problem of conformal mapping on the half-plane of finite polygonal regions bounded by straight lines and circular arcs she applied these ideas to the physical problem of the two-dimensional seepage flow of ground water in an earth dam of a particular shape.
