The classical structure-function (SF) method in fully developed turbulence or for scaling processes in general is influenced by large-scale energetic structures, known as the infrared effect. Therefore, the extracted scaling exponents ζ(n) might be biased due to this effect. In this paper, a detrended structure-function (DSF) method is proposed to extract scaling exponents by constraining the influence of large-scale structures. This is accomplished by removing a first-order polynomial fitting… 

Extremal-point density of scaling processes: From fractional Brownian motion to turbulence in one dimension.

The results show that for the fractional Brownian motion (fBm) without intermittency correction the measured extremal-point-density (EPD) agrees well with a theoretical prediction and that the power-law behavior of these scaling processes is revealed via the measured EPD for different scales.

Multi-level segment analysis: definition and application in turbulent systems

For many complex systems the interaction of different scales is among the most interesting and challenging features. It seems not very successful to extract the physical properties in different scale

Stochastic Analysis of Scaling Time Series: From Turbulence Theory to Applications

This book presents the mathematical theory behind the stochastic analysis of scaling time series, including a general historical introduction to the problem of intermittency in turbulence, as well as how to implement this analysis for a range of different applications.



Second-order structure function in fully developed turbulence.

An analysis of passive scalar (temperature) turbulence time series is presented to show the influence of large-scale structures in real turbulence and the efficiency of the Hilbert-based methodology, and corresponding scaling exponents ζ(θ)(q) provided by the Hilbert -based approach indicate that the Passive scalar turbulence field may be less intermittent than what was previously believed.

Arbitrary-order Hilbert spectral analysis for time series possessing scaling statistics: comparison study with detrended fluctuation analysis and wavelet leaders.

An extended version of Hilbert-Huang transform, namely arbitrary-order Hilbert spectral analysis, is presented to characterize the scale-invariant properties of a time series directly in an amplitude-frequency space and it seems that Hilbert and DFA methods provide better singularity spectra than SF and WL.

It is demonstrated that the method, based on the wavelet-transform modulus-maxima representation, works in most situations and is likely to be the ground of a unified multifractal description of self-affine distributions.

An amplitude-frequency study of turbulent scaling intermittency using Empirical Mode Decomposition and Hilbert Spectral Analysis

Hilbert-Huang transform is a method that has been introduced recently to decompose nonlinear, nonstationary time series into a sum of different modes, each one having a characteristic frequency. Here

Signatures of non-universal large scales in conditional structure functions from various turbulent flows

We present a systematic comparison of conditional structure functions in nine turbulent flows. The flows studied include forced isotropic turbulence simulated on a periodic domain, passive grid wind

Identifying turbulent energy distributions in real, rather than fourier, space.

This Letter determines the form of the signature function, which plays the role of an energy density, somewhat analogous to E(k), and finds that dissipation-range phenomena, such as the so-called bottleneck effect, are evident in the Signature function, while absent in the structure function.

Hilbert statistics of vorticity scaling in two-dimensional turbulence

In this paper, the scaling property of the inverse energy cascade and forward enstrophy cascade of the vorticity filed ω(x, y) in two-dimensional (2D) turbulence is analyzed. This is accomplished by

Haar wavelets, fluctuations and structure functions: convenient choices for geophysics

Abstract. Geophysical processes are typically variable over huge ranges of space-time scales. This has lead to the development of many techniques for decomposing series and fields into fluctuations

Scaling of maximum probability density functions of velocity and temperature increments in turbulent systems

In this paper, we introduce a new way to estimate the scaling parameter of a self-similar process by considering the maximum probability density function (pdf) of tis increments. We prove this for
