Soliton Chaos in Elastic Chains and Turbulence

  • Tomasz Kapitaniak
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 331)


The possibility of purely spatial chaos of loop soliton localization in long elastic strings is considered. Connections between Euler elastica and the trajectory of fluid particle are discussed.
