The well-known Benard-von Karman cylinder wake is one of the most challenging phenomena of fluid mechanics. As the Reynolds number of the flow around a cylinder passes through a critical value, alternating vortex shedding appears via a Hopf bifurcation. Theoretical studies of the wake have described the appearance of this self-sustained oscillation as the result of a convective to absolute transition resulting in the formation of a global mode. We illustrate here the convective global regime of the subcritical wake by analyzing visualizations of its impulse response.
