Simulation of Relativistic Force-free Magnetohydrodynamic Turbulence


We present numerical studies of 3-dimensional magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) turbulence in a strongly magnetized medium in the extremely relativistic limit, in which the inertia of the charge carriers can be neglected. We have focused on strong Alfvenic turbulence in the limit. We have found the following results. First, the energy spectrum is consistent with a… (More)
