The Search for Gravity Waves and Dark Energy Gets Help from FPGAs
She further explained that some of the waves they have found, such as the acoustic waves or the gravity waves, have properties almost identical to those on Earth, however, other types of waves do not exist on our planet, like the ones they have called centrifugal waves and they were responsible for the two hundred and fifty five day oscillations displayed by the winds of Venus.
Two-dimensional instability of finite amplitude internal gravity wave packets near a crtical level.
Among specific topics are buoyancy and stability, basic elastostatics, nearly ideal flow, action and reaction, gravity waves, and subsonic flight.
While gravity waves have yet to be detected, he posits them from observations of binary stars.
The type of gravity wave that the researchers identified as a possible source of bumpiness are generated spontaneously and associated with jet streams at high altitudes, near cruising levels for airplanes.
These have never been observed, and when some accounts of detecting gravity waves were published, the physicists involved had to quickly retract them.
