For the following data see Physical Review Letters 81, 19, 4140:
For alpha=0.5, gamma=1.5, Re=160, upper branch solution
with nx=64, ny=41, nz=64.
Fortran order (i.e. do z, do y, do x).
x is streamwise, y is wall-normal and z spanwise.
Field is sampled
at x=0 to (nx-1) Lx/nx likewise for z.
Sampled uniformly from -1 to 1 (included) in y.
(this old data was computed using a Fourier expansion,
no need for Chebyshev for free-free boundary conditions
so all you need to work with this is a triply periodic code).
