decibelle is on a distinguished road

I use pyFoamPlotWatcher to see the residuals. when I run a simulation I can see 3 windows:
- one for residuals
- one for continuity
- the last one for the bounded variables

The continuity is composed of 2 curves, one for global continuity and the other one for cumulative continuity. I don't understand the differences between the both and what are representing.

the bounded variables concern k and omega (avg, max, min). I've the same problem, I don't understand the differences between k-avg, k-min, k-max and for omega-avg, omega-min and omega-max. and I don't understand the function of this graph.

someone can explain me these 2 points?

thanks in advance
