Weak Turbulence in Ocean Waves Yuri V. Lvov Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute Troy, New York Weak nonlinear interactions between waves. (B) Random phases of the waves. (C) Exactly resonant interactions between wave triads, quartets or quintets. a spatially homogeneous weakly nonlinear inertial-wave-driven flow in which we can test the quantitative pre-dictions of WTT. We focus on the prediction for the spatial spectrum in statistically steady state, the cen-tral object of WTT. According to Refs. [15, 16], weak inertial-wave turbulence consists of energy transfers to-wards low. Wave or weak turbulence is a branch of science concerned with the evolution of random wave fields of all kinds and on all scales, from waves in galaxies to capillary waves on water surface, from This title presents the advances in wave turbulence. Conversely, in the presence of a high-amplitude condensate, the diagonal second-order cumulants no longer vanish in the long time limit, which signals a breakdown of the weak-turbulence theory. However, we show that an asymptotic closure of the hierarchy of the cumulants’ equations is still possible provided one considers the Bogoliubov’s.

We show that the cascades are induced by a six-wave resonant interaction process described by weak turbulence theory. We show that by starting with weakly nonlinear randomized waves as an initial condition, there exists an inverse cascade of photons towards the lowest wavenumbers.

The theory of weak turbulence developed for wind-driven waves in theoretical works and in recent extensive numerical studies concludes that non-dimensional features of self-similar wave growth (i.e. wave energy and characteristic frequency) have to be scaled by internal wave-field properties (fluxes of energy, momentum or wave action) rather than by external attributes (e.g. wind speed) which.

These lectures give a (hopefully!) pedagogical introduction to the theory of nonlinear interactions of waves and weak turbulence. After having derived the pertubative expansion of the Hamiltonian of surface waves, we write down the kinetic equations for the number density of waves.

Then stationary solutions to these kinetic equations allow us to find the weak turbulence spectrum. Specifically, the weak turbulence theory is presented as it is applied to electromagnetic wave-particle interactions, nonlinear wave-wave interactions, and nonlinear wave-particle interactions.

This book is a useful reference for students and researchers in the study of classical physics and plasma theory. Abstract. This paper serves as a brief nontechnical introduction to the lectures delivered by the author at the NSF-CBMS Conference on Nonlinear Waves and Weak Turbulence, held at Case Western Reserve University in May Abstract.

A method is presented for obtaining exact closed-form solutions of the Hopf functional equation for the probability density functional describing a stationary ensemble of nonlinear waves, e.g., surface gravity waves in 3D incompressible Navier-Stokes fluid, Rossby waves in a quasigeostrophic 2-layer model or excitations governed by damped cubic Schrödinger or Ginzburg-Landau equations.

The book is organized into two major parts, examining both linear and nonlinear plasma waves in the eight chapters it encompasses. After briefly discussing the properties and applications of plasma wave, the book goes on examining the wave types in a cold, magnetized plasma and the general forms of the dispersion relation that characterize the.

The possibility of propagating waves and related new features of the nonlinear processes leading to weak turbulence are considered. The latter topic is illustrated by the case of a Couette flow between coaxial cylinders rotating at different angular speeds, which. ISBN: OCLC Number: Description: x, pages: illustrations ; 24 cm.

far from the deep understanding of the whole pattern of the weak turbulence. The present review deals with one important example of weak turbulence--the Langmuir plasma turbulence. The dominant nonlinear process is a decay of plasma wave into another plasma oscillation and ion-sound wave l.

About this book Now in an accessible paperback edition, this classic work is just as relevant as when it first appeared indue to the increased use of nonlinear waves. It covers the behavior of waves in two parts, with the first part addressing hyperbolic waves and the second addressing dispersive waves.

We consider the weak turbulence of whistler waves in the in low-β inner magnetosphere of the earth. Whistler waves, originating in the ionosphere, propagate radially outward and can trigger nonlinear induced scattering by thermal electrons provided the wave energy density is large enough.

Nonlinear scattering can substantially change the direction of the wave vector of whistler waves and. Breakdown of the KZ spectrum and the generalisedPhillips (critical balance) spectrum Weak turbulence requires the linear timescale, τL, associated with the waves to be much faster than the nonlinear timescale, τNL, associated with resonant energy transfer between waves.
