    The article examines the scalar dissipation fronts in high-Schmidt number mixing. As stated in the article, regions of very strong gradients which have relation to dissipation, mixing and chemical reactions are developed when passive scalar fields are advected by passive scalar fields.

    A classical field system is considered that consists of two interacting scalar fields, the Higgs real field and a complex scalar field. It is demonstrated that there exists a nontrivial topological solution in this system—a kink carrying a U(1) charge. Certain questions are discussed...
