Structure formation in turbulence is effectively an instability of "plasma" formed by fluctuations serving as particles. These "particles" are quantumlike; namely, their wavelengths are non-negligible compared to the sizes of background coherent structures. The corresponding "kinetic equation" describes the Wigner matrix of the turbulent field, and the coherent structures serve as collective fields. This formalism is usually applied to manifestly quantumlike or scalar waves. Here, we extend it… CONTINUE READING
