# Conservative regularization of neutral fluids and plasmas

@article{Sachdev2020ConservativeRO, title={Conservative regularization of neutral fluids and plasmas}, author={Sonakshi Sachdev}, journal={arXiv: Fluid Dynamics}, year={2020} }

Ideal systems of equations such as Euler and MHD may develop singular structures like shocks, vortex/current sheets. Among these, vortical singularities arise due to vortex stretching which can lead to unbounded growth of enstrophy. Viscosity and resistivity provide dissipative regularizations of these singularities. In analogy with the dispersive KdV regularization of the 1D inviscid Burgers' equation, we propose a local conservative regularization of ideal 3D compressible flows, MHD and 2…
