Stripe formation in differentially forced binary systems

Abstract:

We consider pattern formation in periodically forced binary systems. In particular, we focus on systems in which two species are differentially forced, one being accelerated with respect to the other. Using a continuum model consisting of two isothermal ideal gases which interact via a frictional force we demonstrate analytically that stripes form spontaneously above a critical forcing amplitude. The wavelength of the stripes is found to be close to the wavelength of sound in the limit of sma...
