Abstract: Elementary comments on time-dependent vector fields and their contours. How does a floating vessel drift in such a vector field? Where to place the vessel so its path ends at a certain point? Evaluating work done by an object in a force field above the pond as it tracks the vessel. A continued fraction is interpreted as a TDVF.

Definition Zeno contour: Let g k ,n ( z ) = z + k ,n ( z ) where z S and g k ,n ( z ) S for a convex set S in the complex plane. Require limk ,n = 0 , where (usually) k = 1,2,..., n . Set

that limit exists. The Zeno contour is a graph of this iteration. The word Zeno denotes the infinite number of actions required in a finite time period if k ,n describes a partition of the time interval [0,1]. Normally, ( z ) = f ( z ) z for a vector field F = f ( z ) , and ( z, t ) = f ( z, t ) z for a time-dependent vector field , in which case g k ,n ( z ) = z + k ,n ( z , k n) .

Begin with k ,n =

The existence of this function (and the integral) is equivalent to the convergence of the Zeno contour, which under appropriate conditions can be described in closed parametric form: when

We begin with images of typical complex vector fields dependent upon time, t.

Example 1

given in dark red. A pathline, derived as a Zeno contour, snakes its way through the plane, describing a streamline for neither vector field.

~2~

Example 2

image of the vector field displays a panoply of twenty vectors at each point ranging from t=0 (dark green) to t=1 (light green). The contour snakes its way through the field color-coded to match the time-determined effect at each point of time.

Start with

(1)

Under suitable integrability conditions the parametric form (PF) is related to a time-dependent vector field (TDVF) as follows: (2) And (3) Thus

dz = ( z , t ) = f ( z , t ) z for a TDVF Ft = f ( z , t ) . dt

Streamlines occur on regular VFs, and were they possible here, one could choose any point on

a given contour and start another contour that would coincide with the first. Clearly this cannot happen.

When z(t ) = x(t ) + iy(t ) splits z0 = x0 + iy0 into real and imaginary parts a similar procedure

applies: express

~4~

Example 4

2y or 2t + 1

2t + 3 f ( z , t ) = 3x + iy . Here z0 = 1 + i . 2t + 1

Intersections of Pathlines:

In a regular vector field streamlines rarely intersect, the exceptions being at certain fixed points

(sources and sinks or repulsive and attractive fixed points). For two streamlines to cross at a point p the infinitesimal vectors that propel the hypothetical points at p would need to point in two directions simultaneously (or two tangent lines).

At each instant a TDVF is merely a regular VF so that the possibility of one pathline crossing

another at a specific moment does not exist. However, paths intersecting at different moments is another matter, as is seen below:

~5~

Example 5

Think of the TDVF as the surface of a turbulent lake. Now pick a location P at random. The task

is to place a vessel at some point so that it will drift and arrive at P exactly one minute (time unit) later. If the TDVF admits a parametric form z(t) then the task is simple: Set z(1) = P and solve for z(0). If this is not possible the task becomes a little more difficult and requires reversing a Zeno contour:

then

1 n : k +1,n = k ,n n ( f (k ,n ,(1 k n )) k ,n )

Flows from 0 = z(1) to (1) = z0 . All under the assumption n . In appearance, the contours are identical.

Example 6 f ( z , t ) = z + z 2t or

Example 7

f ( z , t ) = z + z 2 (2t + i ) or ( z , t ) = z 2 (2t + i ) =

dz , which gives dt

z(t ) =

Example 8

dz = e zt and a closed expression for z(t ) is not easily dt 1 produces obtained. We set the target location z(1) = 3 + 4i (red blob). Applying n

f ( z , t ) = e zt + z . Thus

On rather rare occasions a hypothetical floating vessel will end up at its starting point in one

minute (or one unit time interval). Simple examples are given by ( z , t ) = (t ) , an integrable function. Example 9

f ( z , t ) = z + Cos(2 t ) + i Sin(2 t ) , = 5 .

~8~

k (i) zk ,n = zk 1,n + k ,n ( f1( zk 1,n , k n ) z k 1,n ) and z k ,n = z k 1,n + k ,n ( f 2( z k 1,n , n ) z k 1,n ) can be

combined to produce (ii) zk ,n = zk 1,n + k ,n ( F ( zk 1,n , k n ) z k 1,n ) , F ( z , t ) = f1 ( z , t ) + f 2( z , t ) z , which can easily be extended to more than two vector fields. We have 1( z , t ) = f1( z , t ) z and 2( z , t ) = f2( z , t ) z , with

( z , t ) = F ( z , t ) z = 1 ( z , t ) + 2 ( z , t ) .

dz dz = 1( z , t ) and = 2( z , t ) each admit simple closed solutions z1(t ) dt dt dz and z2(t ) , whereas = ( z , t ) is intractable. For instance: dt

2z0 . 2 z0it 2

dz = ( z , t ) = z(1 + 4it ) + z 2it admits no easy solution. However, the corresponding dt 1 2 k Zeno contour provides a constructive approach: zk ,n = zk 1,n + ( zk 1,n (1 + 4i k n ) + z k 1,ni n ) n

(in green) is somehow an average or a sum of the two parametric curves, but that is not, in general, the case.

If two (or more) TDVFs admit parametric formulations of their contours, and

dz = ( z , t ) = 1( z , t ) + 2( z , t ) is solvable in closed form z(t ) , then it may be possible to dt demonstrate how z(t ) and z1(t ) , z2(t ) are related, as seen in this next example:

Example 10

dz = ( z , t ) = 2z 2t + izt . Thus dt

it 2 /2

iz1(t ) (1 + t 2z2(t )) z2(t ) (2 + it 2 2t 2z1(t )) + i 2z1(t )

. Hardly an endorsement for calling this

reveals: z(t ) =

process addition! z1(t ) is red, z2(t ) is blue, and the contour z(t ) is in green.

Several General Categories of Vector Fields and their Contours: The relation between a contour z = z(t ) and its vector field F : f ( z , t ) has been discussed. Here are a few simple correspondences. (0) = 0 and (0) = 0 . (1)

z(t ) = z0 + (t ) f ( z , t ) = z + (t )

f ( z , t ) = z (1 + (t ))

(3) z(t ) = z0 (1 + (t ))

f ( z ,t ) =

z 1 + (t )

(1 + (t ) + z (t ))

z + (t ) (4) z(t ) = 0 1 z0 (t )

z (t ) (5) z(t ) = 0 1 z0 (t )

z 2 (t ) + z ( (t ) (t ) (t ) (t )) + (t ) f ( z ,t ) = z + 1 + (t ) (t )

z 2 (t ) (t ) + z ( 2(t ) + (t ) (t ))

f ( z ,t ) =

2(t )

, (0) = 1

Example 11

z f ( z ,t ) = z + (t + 1)2 ) 2( 1+t

Tracking the Drifting Vessel Work done by an Object in a Force Field above the Vessel: Assume the vessel is subject to fluid flow given by F1 and the object is subject to the force field

(a) Choose a point in the lake where you wish the vessel to be at t=1; (b) Locate the point where the (drifting) vessel must be at t=0 in order to achieve this; (c) Assume the object is above the vessel at all times, tracking the vessel; (d) Compute the work done by the object during the time interval [0,1]. Starting with F1,t : f1( z , t ) and 1( z , t ) = f1( z , t ) z , if

dz = 1( z , t ) has a closed form solution dt z(t ) = x(t ) + iy(t ) then the problem may be solvable in closed form if all expressions, including

F2,t : f2( z , t ) , are fairly simple. However, it is highly likely an integral expression will require an

approximation. Therefore, we deal only with the general case in which all that is required is that the various functions be continuous in all variables. The method outlined will include all approximations in one algorithm. The procedure begins with the reverse Zeno contour

1 n : k +1,n = k ,n n ( f1(k ,n ,(1 k n )) k ,n ) , employed to locate (1) = z(0) for a pre-

assigned value (0) = z(1) . Once this is done, the standard contour is generated by

Re f 2( z , t )dz = Re f 2( z , t )

0 1

dz dt dt

f 2 ( z k ,n , k n ) ( z k +1,n z k ,n ) =

1 k f 2 ( z k ,n , k n ) ( z k ,n , n ) k ,n n

n

so that

n k =1

The next example demonstrates this process in a case in which a closed form is doubtful:

~ 12 ~

Example 12 We begin with the lakes vector field and the objects force field: 1 f1( z , t ) = xCos(6 ty ) + i ySin(6 tx ) and f2( z , t ) = Sin( y ) xCos(2 x ) + i (5tSin( x + 2 y )) , 5 both of which are non-conservative. We choose as the terminal destination P = 3 + 2i (red blob), and running the algorithm find that z0 7.2417 + 5.3319 i (green blob). The work done by the object as it tracks the boat is Work 2.8683 .

In the figure below the green vector clusters are the lakes TDVF, the red vector clusters are the

objects TDVF; the path of the boat is time-shaded green, and the red time-shaded path shows the development of the integral whose real part is work done by the object. The large blue blob represents the terminal value of the integral.

~ 13 ~

generated by iterating the function + + f (z) z f (z) = can be expressed in multiplier or indicator form =K , where + z f (z) z K= and . Thus the nth approximant Fn( ) = f ( n)( ) can be expressed as

F (z) z f ( n)( z ) z = Kt which extends to a continuous function easily: t . = Kn ( n) Ft ( z ) z f (z) z

The following two images, = 3 + i , = 4 + i , show the simple VF when t=1 , illustrating the repelling fixed point on the left and the attracting fixed point on the right , and the timedependent VF in which t : 1 20 . For higher values of t the attractive character of is preserved, but the repelling character of more or less vanishes.

~ 14 ~

As before we investigate

f ( z , t ) = Ft ( z ,0) for our TDVF. Here = 1 + i , ( z ) = z , = 1 + i . Two vectors are

displayed at each point, the first for t=.2 (black) and the second for t=1 (green).

To be continued . . .
