Self-similar evolution of Alfven wave turbulence

We study self-similar solutions of the kinetic equation for MHD wave turbulence derived in (Galtier S et al 2000 J. Plasma Phys. 63 447–88). Motivated by finding the asymptotic behaviour of solutions for initial value problems, we formulate a nonlinear eigenvalue problem comprising in finding a number x∗ such that the self-similar shape function f… CONTINUE READING
