EPFL researchers crack an enduring physics enigma

Researchers from EPFL have found the mechanism that lies behind a mysterious physics phenomenon in fluid mechanics: the fact that turbulence in fluids spontaneously self-organizes into parallel patterns of oblique turbulent bands — an example of order emerging spontaneously from chaos. In so doing, they solved a problem that had stumped generations of physicists.
