A three-dimensional pseudo-spectral algorithm for the computaion of convection in a rotating annulus. (English) Zbl 0722.76050
Summary: We present a three-dimensional Chebyshev-Fourier pseudospectral algorithm for the computation of the Navier-Stokes equations of an incompressible fluid in a rotating annulus. The algorithm integrates the time-dependent equations in primitive variables with a second order accurate time stepping scheme. The incompressibility constraint is maintained with an influence matrix technique. Rossby waves are obtained for different values of the governing parameters.
