Waves and strings. Tidal waves observed appeared consisting of string bundles, providing an intriguing insight into strings fundamentals and associated phenomena.

As my observations show, strings are formed by tidal waves practically always. Even significant turbulence does not completely destroy their well correlated and tight bundles.

This phenomenon caught my technological attention because, as a SC technologist I am aware about quite a number of technological approaches, utilizing spreading liquid to create a later solidified thin film by pouring the liquid over a central section of a spinning wafer for centrifugal forces to force it spreading uniformly over the wafer surface. The observed string formation, if it is an intrinsic property  developing when a liquid flow persists, it may occur in any liquid thin film spreading process. Including all those involved in advanced SC wafer processing, ultimately affecting device yield and reliability.

Here below you can find a magnified section of the Pacific coastal waves picture clearly showing the string structure. You can also find numerous examples of similar structures examining the relevant pictures published at the Web.

 Also, at this point, I was looking through a paper on Superradiance (SR) phenomenon – a radiation enhancement process involving interaction of a propagating wave with an energy-dissipating system, like a vortex, for example, resulting in energy and angular momentum exchange between them.  And I was thinking that the existence of tidal waves consisting of bundles of longitudinal strings may assist in better understanding of the SR phenomenon, showing how the vortex-imposed wrenching action causes the strings to compress forward resulting in their increased localized amplitudes. And also how the vortex wrenching action forces the wave strings to bend and turn propagating in the wrenching dictated direction.


Well, this idea… it was finally not bad at all.

I found doing some image analysis work the video (its first 5 sec) from the work https://www.nature.com/nphys/journal/vaop/ncurrent/full/nphys4151.html published at Nature Phys. and reviewed at http://www.zmescience.com/science/simulating-black-hole-bath-tub/.

But first, why I considered to look through their images. The authors of this work utilized the phenomenon of interaction of plane waves with a so-called bath-tub vortex to address the SR problem. It is not my business to review the results of this study here, I just want to present my findings based on the analysis of their images.

As I assumed above, if the  stringed tidal wave propagates and reaches a vortex, the vortex-imposed wrenching action should cause the forward scattered strings to be longitudinally compressed resulting in increase of their amplitudes. And also forcing the strings to bend and to propagate in the wrenching ordered direction. Well, I was too kind with regard to the vortex action, which came out to be way more cruel than I could expect.

The set of images below (original snapshot from the mentioned above work, and two its black&white copies with different level of contrast and brightness to accent what I found. In the image the surface light reflections clearly mark the wave sequence propagating towards the vortex, with easily observable its maxima and minima, as well as the vortex itself. Being not sure about the origin of the bottom shade waviness, I manipulated the image contrast and brightness to minimize the bottom shadows imaging contribution (the lower right image). So, here are the observations:

  • The vortex wrenching action not only bends and dis-bundles the strings, but rips them apart causing a complete structural mess in the post-vortex zone.
  • The incoming (pre-vortex) wave fronts, maybe not perfectly, but clearly demonstrate here and there multiple fragments of the stringed structure (those reflecting under given set of conditions)

The deduced features are conceptually well reproduced in all 10 snapshots extracted and analysed.


All this effort – does it have some scientific value above satisfying my trivial curiosity? I think, it has, because if the string structure of tidal currents is a generic property, then any propagating wave, including the Big Bang spacetime expansion wave, is/was supposed to leave the space-time modulated with strings, being of long size in reasonably calm areas and ripped, crooked and curled, near Black Holes.

So, was it worth to dig in somebody else’s data? Yes, it was. I learned a lot of new stuff from this analysis:

  1. The waves and the strings are unified.
  2. Because the spacetime is continuous it is subjected to waviness induced by various kind of disturbances. For this reason the waviness is its basic property , gravitational ripples of different periods, amplitudes and wavelengths. Like a surface of an ocean.
  3. And where the waves there the coupled to waves strings – short and long, thick and thin, well bundled and dis-bundled, disrupted and distorted by intense turbulences, like Black Holes, for example.

The major conclusion:

Waves and strings appear to be coupled features. Where the waves there the strings. Even in turbulent zones

The universe is full of waviness and strings short and long, thick and thin, well-bundled and dis-bundled, disrupted and distorted by intense turbulences.

The major conclusion:

Waves and strings appear to be coupled features. Where the waves there the strings. Even in turbulent zones

It may sound crazy, though…

Well, this is our brain, never stops working – use it or loose it. I think I got an idea what drives the large (f(x,y,t)) waves to split in strings – it is just the simple energy minimization law. In other words each f(x,t) wave (or string) of the overall large f(x,y,t) bundle must be as independent as possible ((within the limits of string-to-string adherence, certainly) to minimize energy losses due to inevitable in reality sudden distresses, jerks, shocks, pulls etc.. So it is a natural large wave property, actually a natural property of any flexible continuous medium, substantia, exposed to the actions of deforming forces and capable to adjust its shape in response to the applied force.

Sounds good to me at this point!

Analyzing the Universe structure may provide some clues on this matter.
