Abstract

Results from a comprehensive analytical and numerical study of nonequilibrium dynamics in the two-dimensional complex Ginzburg-Landau equation have been presented. In particular, spiral defects have been used to characterize the domain growth law and the evolution morphology. An asymptotic analysis of the single-spiral correlation function shows a sequence of singularities—analogous to those seen for time-dependent Ginzburg-Landau models with O(n) symmetry, where n is even.
