Developing mathematical theories of the physical world: Open Access research on fluid dynamics from Strathclyde

Strathprints makes available Open Access scholarly outputs by Strathclyde's Department of Mathematics & Statistics, where continuum mechanics and industrial mathematics is a specialism. Such research seeks to understand fluid dynamics, among many other related areas such as liquid crystals and droplet evaporation.

The Department of Mathematics & Statistics also demonstrates expertise in population modelling & epidemiology, stochastic analysis, applied analysis and scientific computing. Access world leading mathematical and statistical Open Access research!

We generalize the concept of pattern occurrence in permutations, words or matrices to that in n-dimensional objects, which are basically sets of (n + 1)-tuples. In the case n = 3, we give a possible interpretation of such patterns in terms of bipartite graphs. For zero-box patterns we study vanishing borders related to bipartite Ramsey problems in the case of two dimensions. Also, we study the maximal number of 1’s in binary objects avoiding (in two different senses) a zero-box pattern.
