Chaotic advection has been identified and studied since the early 1980s. This book presents a comprehensive picture of the state of development on the subject, covering all areas of the subject including the mathematical tools used to describe chaotic advection, detailed exploration of lobe dynamics, aperiodic systems, stretching and alignment, and chaotic advection and diffusion. Much of the interest in chaotic advection stems from applications and the new ways in which this phenomenon allows one to interpret experimental results and field observations. This volume gives numerous applications of chaotic advection in many areas, including pipe flow, heat transfer enhancement and several geophysical applications including statistics on 'microstructure' in flows dominated by large eddies, providing an inspirational collection of examples for workers involved in a wide variety of problems that involve fluid mixing processes.
