Finite-Time Lyapunov Exponent Field in the Infinitesimal Time Limit

Authors: Peter J. Nolan, Shane D. Ross

Lagrangian analysis using techniques such as the finite-time Lyapunov exponent (FTLE) field or Lagrangian coherent structures can be very informative as to the dynamics of a system, however these methods can be time consuming to integrate and tricky to interpret. Recent developments in dynamical systems theory have generated new Eulerian methods, such as objective Eulerian coherent structures (OECS), for the anaylsis of dynamical systems. In this paper we will build upon this previous work by connecting OECS to FTLE, and providing a new method for the visualization of OECS.
