    Article
    Open Access
    The concept of synthetic dimensions works particularly well in atomic physics, quantum optics, and photonics, where the internal degrees of freedom (Zeeman sublevels of the ground state, metastable excited states, or ...
  • Parametric analysis of the flow past a square cylinder in the interface of two different-velocity streams 

    Elmansy, Reda Mohamed Yousyf Abdallah; Bergadà Granyó, Josep Maria; Sarwar, Wasim; Mellibovsky Elstein, Fernando (2024-05-13)
    Article
    Open Access
    We address the linear stability of the two-dimensional incompressible flow past a square cylinder immersed in the wake of an upstream splitter plate, which separates two streams of different velocities, UT (top) and UB ...
