Is multiscaling an artifact in the stochastically forced Burgers equation?

Abstract

We study turbulence in the one-dimensional Burgers equation with a white-in-time, Gaussian random force that has a Fourier-space spectrum approximately 1/k, where k is the wave number. From very high-resolution numerical simulations, in the limit of vanishing viscosity, we find evidence for multiscaling of velocity structure functions which cannot be… (More)
