The aim of the present work is to derive rigorous estimates for turbulent MHD flow quantities such as the size and anisotropy of the dissipative scales, as well as the transition between 2D and 3D state. To this end, we calculate an upper bound for the attractor dimension of the motion equations, which indicates the number of modes present in the fully developed flow. This method has already been used successfully to derive such estimates for 2D and 3D hydrodynamic turbulence as a function of… Expand

A description of MHD turbulence at low magnetic Reynolds number and large interaction parameter is proposed, in which attention is focussed on the role of insulating walls perpendicular to a uniform… Expand

Research on the abstract properties of the Navier–Stokes equations in three dimensions has cast a new light on the time-asymptotic approximate solutions of those equations. Here heuristic arguments,… Expand

It is shown that a rigorous estimate for the fractal dimension of the global attractor of the three-dimensional incompressible Navier - Stokes equations on periodic boundary conditions is given by… Expand
