Fluid mixing is poorly understood. However, some of the main concepts can be captured by both computational and experimental studies of two-dimensional flows. The identification of coherent structures and how they change with variations of the governing parameters gives insight into the behaviour of chaotic systems and can serve as a model for a variety of problems found in nature.
