**Partial Differential Equations**

Parabolic partial differential equations may have finite-dimensional attractors. The diffusive part of the equation damps higher frequencies and in some cases leads to a global attractor. The *Ginzburg–Landau*, the *Kuramoto–Sivashinsky*, and the two-dimensional, forced Navier–Stokes equations are all known to have global attractors of finite dimension.

For the three-dimensional, incompressible Navier–Stokes equation with periodic boundary conditions, if it has a global attractor, then this attractor will be of finite dimensions.

### Famous quotes containing the words partial and/or differential:

“We were soon in the smooth water of the Quakish Lake,... and we had our first, but a *partial* view of Ktaadn, its summit veiled in clouds, like a dark isthmus in that quarter, connecting the heavens with the earth.”

—Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

“But how is one to make a scientist understand that there is something unalterably deranged about *differential* calculus, quantum theory, or the obscene and so inanely liturgical ordeals of the precession of the equinoxes.”

—Antonin Artaud (1896–1948)
