By construction those drift vector fields vanish on the boundary and their flow lines individually stay away from the boundary. The capacity of those drift vector fields to accelerate diffusivity originates from high frequency oscillation of the associated flow lines. The lower bounds for the spectrum are obtained through isoperimetric inequalities for flow invariant functions.</p>}, number={3}, journal={MATHEMATICA SCANDINAVICA}, author={Athmouni, Nassim and Damak, Mondher and Franke, Brice and Yaakoubi, Nejib}, year={2023}, month={Oct.} }
