In the relaxation of turbulence in nearly inviscid 2D flows, energy flows to long wavelengths, while enstrophy is dissipated on fine scales [1], leading to inviscid invariants that are “fragile” or “robust” in the presence of weak viscosity [2]. Relaxed states can be predicted based on maximization of entropy [3,4] or minimization of enstrophy [5], and surprising agreement with the minimum enstrophy states has been found in experiments in some parameter regimes [6]. However, experiments [7] and… CONTINUE READING
