Topological Dynamics in the Physical and Biological Sciences
We consider clusters of interconnected resonant triads arising from the Hamiltonian three-wave equation. A cluster consists of N modes forming a total of M connected triads. We investigate the problem of constructing a linearly independent set of quadratic constants of motion. We show that this problem is equivalent to an underlying basic linear problem, consisting of finding the null space of a rectangular M × N matrix A with entries 1, -1 and 0. In particular, we prove that the number of independent quadratic invariants is equal to J = N – M >= N – M, where M is the number of linearly independent rows in A. We formulate an algorithm for decomposing large clusters of complicated topology into smaller ones and show how various invariants are related to certain parts and linking types of a cluster, including the basic structures leading to M* < M. We illustrate our findings by examples taken from the Charney-Hasegawa-Mima wave model.
