Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

We study a diffusive, multistable optical system with nonlocal nonlinearity where the transverse dispersion relations of traveling waves emerging from uniform states are modified by filtering the spatial frequencies. We investigate how the spatial cutoff frequency has strong effects on the position and nature of the primary bifurcation leading to traveling waves and enable the observation of secondary bifurcations of the traveling waves to a great variety of blinking and traveling bright droplets. We give an overview of the properties of waves and droplets
