We found universal anizopropic spectra of acoustic turbulence with the linear dispersion law {omega}(k)=ck within the framework of generalized kinetic equation which takes into account the finite time of three-wave interactions. This anisotropic spectra can assume both scale-invariant and non-scale-invariant form. The implications for the evolution of the acoustic turbulence with nonisotropic pumping are discussed. The main result of the article is that the spectra of acoustic turbulence tend…

Nonlinear Second Sound Waves in superfluid helium: Instabilities, turbulence and Rogue Waves

The theory of the phenomena is outlined and shown to be in good agreement with the experiments, and Observations of direct and inverse turbulent energy cascades are described.

MHD Turbulence: Scaling Laws and Astrophysical Implications

Turbulence is the most common state of astrophysical flows. In typical astrophysical fluids, turbulence is accompanied by strong magnetic fields, which has a large impact on the dynamics of the


We study the damping processes of both incompressible and compressible magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) turbulence in a partially ionized medium. We start from the linear analysis of MHD waves, applying

Interstellar Turbulence I: Observations and Processes

▪ Abstract Turbulence affects the structure and motions of nearly all temperature and density regimes in the interstellar gas. This two-part review summarizes the observations, theory, and

Generation of compressible modes in MHD turbulence

Astrophysical turbulence is magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) in nature. We discuss fundamental properties of MHD turbulence and in particular the generation of compressible MHD waves by Alfvénic turbulence

Introduction to nonlinear phenomena in superfluid liquids and Bose–Einstein condensates: helium, semiconductors and graphene

We review current understanding of the non-equilibrium dynamics of collective quantum systems. We describe an approach based on the Hamiltonian formulation of superfluid hydrodynamics. It is shown

Compressible magnetohydrodynamic turbulence: mode coupling, scaling relations, anisotropy, viscosity-damped regime and astrophysical implications

We present numerical simulations and explore scalings and anisotropy of compressible magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) turbulence. Our study covers both gas-pressure-dominated (high β) and
