High amplitude vorticity regions in developed turbulence often constitute tube or sheet-like structures.

Welcome to the Center for the Study of Complex Systems

The Center for the Study of Complex Systems (CSCS) is a broadly interdisciplinary program in the College of Literature, Science and the Arts (LSA) at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Our mission is to encourage and facilitate research and education in the general area of nonlinear, dynamical and adaptive systems.
