# Real Schur flow computations, helicity fastening effects and Bagua-pattern cyclones

@inproceedings{Zhu2021RealSF, title={Real Schur flow computations, helicity fastening effects and Bagua-pattern cyclones}, author={Jian-Zhou Zhu}, year={2021} }

A semi-analytical algorithm is developed for simulating flows with the velocity gradient uniformly of the real Schur form. Computations for both decaying and driven cases are performed, exhibiting basic results for general conception and testing the specific notion of ‘helicity fastening flows’, and, creating the Jiu-Gong/Ba-Gua (ditetragonal/octagonal) pattern of cyclones resembling northern circumpolar cluster of Jupiter.

It is reported that visible and infrared images obtained from above each pole by the Juno spacecraft during its first five orbits reveal persistent polygonal patterns of large cyclones. Expand

Modeling the stability of polygonal patterns of vortices at the poles of Jupiter as revealed by the Juno spacecraft

- Medicine, Geology
- Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences
- 2020

This work model the vortices using the shallow water equations, which describe a single layer of fluid that moves horizontally and has a free surface that moves up and down in response to fluid convergence and divergence, and finds that the stability of the pattern depends mostly on shielding—an anticyclonic ring around each cyclone, but also on the depth.
