The small-scale energy-transfer mechanism in zero-temperature superfluid turbulence of helium-4 is still a widely debated topic. Currently, the main hypothesis is that weakly nonlinear interacting Kelvin waves (KWs) transfer energy to sufficiently small scales such that energy is dissipated as heat via phonon excitations. Theoretically, there are at least two proposed theories for Kelvin-wave interactions. We perform the most comprehensive numerical simulation of weakly nonlinear interacting…

Scaling laws of wave-cascading superfluid turbulence
Phenomenological model is constructed for superfluid turbulence for two distinct energy cascade scenarios, sound wave cascade and critically-balanced Kelvin wave cascade, using the method for
Kelvin waves and the decay of quantum superfluid turbulence
intervortex distance � . These excitations cascade down to the resolution scale �ξ which in our simulations is of the order �ξ ∼ �/ 100. At this scale, the Kelvin waves are numerically damped by a
Amplitude of Waves in the Kelvin-Wave Cascade
Development of experimental techniques to study superfluid dynamics, in particular, application of nanomechanical oscillators to drive vortex lines, enables potential observation of the Kelvin-wave
Comment on “Amplitude of Waves in the Kelvin-Wave Cascade” (JETP Letters 111, 389 (2020))
In the recently published preprint arXiv:200.02610 Eltsov and L'vov calculated the amplitudes of waves in the Kelvin-wave cascades. This returns us to the rather old, but still unresolved dispute on
Inviscid diffusion of vorticity in low-temperature superfluid helium
We numerically study the spatial spreading of quantized vortex lines in low temperature liquid helium. The vortex lines, initially concentrated in a small region, diffuse into the surrounding
A Note on the Propagation of Quantized Vortex Rings Through a Quantum Turbulence Tangle: Energy Transport or Energy Dissipation?
We investigate quantum vortex ring dynamics at scales smaller than the inter-vortex spacing in quantum turbulence. Through geometrical arguments and high-resolution numerical simulations, we examine
Coarse-grained pressure dynamics in superfluid turbulence
Quantum mechanics places significant restrictions on the hydrodynamics of superfluid flows. Despite this it has been observed that turbulence in superfluids can, in a statistical sense, share many of
Dynamics of quantized vortices and electron bubbles in the Gross-Pitaevskii model of a superfluid
In this thesis we present an extensive study on quantised vortex dynamics using the Gross-Pitaevskii model of a superfluid in the limit of zero temperature. We make use of an accurate and robust
Active and finite-size particles in decaying quantum turbulence at low temperature
The evolution of a turbulent tangle of quantum vortices in presence of finite-size active particles is studied by means of numerical simulations of the Gross-Pitaevskii equation. Particles are
Quantized Vortex Rings and Loop Solitons
The vortex filament model is used to investigate the interaction of a quantized vortex ring with a straight vortex line and also the interaction of two solitons traveling in opposite directions along


Wave Turbulence Formalism
In this Chapter, the main mathematical derivation of the weak Wave Turbulence closure is presented. This includes formulating the nonlinear wave equation in Fourier space using the interaction
