All computations were performed with CFD software. Channelflow provides well-tested and easy-to-use implementations of a spectral CFD algorithm, algorithms for computing equilibria, traveling waves, periodic orbits, and their linear stability, and utilities for manipulating velocity fields and producing visualizations.

The animations were produced as uncompressed AVI files in with custom Matlab visualization scripts and then compressed and packaged as mp4s with the "mencoder" and "mp4creator" video utilities in Linux. The simulation software and scripts for producing movies can be downloaded from
