- Either time-dependent Dirichlet or periodic boundary conditions would work. Italo Tasso (talk) 15:55, 22 May 2014 (UTC)
In the "Original work" section we have u = A cos(ax) sin(by) sin(cz). In the "Taylor–Green vortex solution" section we have u = sin(x) cos(y). This is not consistent with A = a = b = 1. Same for v. Italo Tasso (talk) 16:02, 22 May 2014 (UTC)
Sorry, see what you mean, (sin and cos are interchanged, and also for "v" there is a negative sign. This should be made consistent. The notation in the "Original work" is actually that of Taylor--Green, so probably best to keep to that way. 220.127.116.11 (talk) 16:36, 22 May 2014 (UTC)
Exact or approximate solution?
In the "Taylor–Green vortex solution" it says "gives agreement with this exact solution, if the exponential is expanded as a Taylor series". Does it mean it is an approximate solution? It is a bit confusing. Is it an exact solution or an approximate solution for small t? Italo Tasso (talk) 16:10, 22 May 2014 (UTC)
The 3D solution, as written, is known only for small time. The 2D solution is exact. However, to map the 2D exact solution, to the 3D solution (which is only for small time), the Taylor series expansion of F(t) is required. 18.104.22.168 (talk) 16:20, 22 May 2014 (UTC)
