The sound of a singularity

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The sound generated by the singularity of a rolled-up vortex sheet is computed. A strong pressure wave is generated, whose Fourier transform is a power of frequency, with the exponent a characteristic of the singularity.
