It is shown that the incorporation of linear sink/source terms in the three-wave resonance interaction model results in the time dependence of the wave amplitudes, which could exhibit the properties of a strange attractor. This finding demonstrates that the transition to turbulent dynamics of the waves could be related not only to the coupling of wave triads but also to the establishing of the strange attractor-like dynamics within individual wave triads. Nonlinear interactions of the waves…

The dynamics of non-divergent flow on a rotating sphere are described by the conservation of absolute vorticity. The analytical study of the non-linear barotropic vorticity equation is greatly
Transition of a network of nonlinear interactions into a regime of strong nonlinear fluctuations: A paradigm for the edge localized mode onset
We study how a network of nonlinear oscillators transits into a regime of strong nonlinear fluctuations when perturbed by a triad. In this regime, most of the potential energy contained in the waves
On the sink/source effects in two-dimensional plasma turbulence
Ad hoc sinks and sources of turbulence are added in the two-dimensional (2D) magnetized plasma model to mimic excitation and damping of the modes. Depending on linear growth and damping rates and

This paper was written for the Culham conference two years ago, but owing to circumstances beyond the control of the authors it has not been widely circulated. The paper is, in the main, the
Zonal flows in plasma—a review
A comprehensive review of zonal flow phenomena in plasmas is presented. While the emphasis is on zonal flows in laboratory plasmas, planetary zonal flows are discussed as well. The review presents
Non-linear dynamics of biological systems
All biological systems can be classified as open, dissipative and non-linear. This review introduces the most typical phenomena associated with non-linearity, dissipation and openness in biological
