Three-dimensional simulations of sheared current sheets : transition to turbulence ?

Abstract

Systems of multiple current sheets arise in various situations in natural plasmas, such as at the heliospheric current sheet in the solar wind and in the outer heliosphere in the heliosheath. Previous three-dimensional simulations have shown that such systems can develop turbulent-like fluctuations resulting from a forward and inverse cascade in wave vector… (More)
