We demonstrate by mean of simple algebra analysis, that in a 3D flow system a clear threshold between pulsating and non-pulsating fields does not exist. This implies that the existence of a stable or pulsating pattern in 3D flow is not simply imposed by the kinematic vorticity numbers. Moreover, we show theoretically that a 3D flow path having complex eigenvalues could evolve into a stable flow path. These results are applied to the kinematic analysis of some non-dilational and dilational monoclinic and triclinic flows.}, number={29}, journal={TRABAJOS DE GEOLOGÍA}, author={Iacopini, D. and Carosi, R.}, year={2011}, month={sep.} }
