Mixing rates for a simple model of industrial mixing device
What is it about?
We study the mixing behaviour of a simple model underpinning the action of a wide range of fluid mixing device. We prove rigorously that the rate of mixing follows a power law, using powerful techniques from ergodic theory.
Why is it important?
Proving rigorous results about the rates of mixing for dynamical systems is challenging. This paper achieves this for a physically important system, and is unusual in the literature as the system in question is two-dimensional, area-preserving and non-uniformly hyperbolic.
