Images of Spatio-Temporal Structures


This page is under construction.


The next few pages give examples of images collected by our group and illustrate a number of interesting features of pattern-forming systems. You are welcome to copy and use these images, but the original authors will be pleased if the appropriate reference, given below each image, is cited. The work which yielded these images was supported by the National Science Foundation and by the U.S. Department of Energy.
