Particle tracking paper?
Hi, all:

I am thinking of coding a particle tracking program to visualize my calculation result. Do some of you happen to know some referece paper on that?

thanks a lot

Re: Particle tracking paper?
What you are interested in are 'tracers' that do not affect the flow.

See for example:

A. Provenzale, Annual Review of Fluid Mechanics, 1999, volume 31, page 55.

See section 3. of that paper.It also considers the case when the motion of the tracers advected by the flow can be chaotic.
