(2018). Dynamics of the vortex line density in superfluid counterflow turbulence. Physical Review B. 97:(1)014508. Abstract
Describing superfluid turbulence at intermediate scales between the intervortex distance and the macroscale requires an acceptable equation of motion for the density of quantized vortex lines $\cal{L}$. The closure of such an equation for superfluid inhomogeneous flows requires additional inputs besides $\cal{L}$ and the normal and superfluid velocity fields. In this paper we offer a minimal closure using one additional anisotropy parameter $I_{l0}$. Using the example of counterflow superfluid turbulence we derive two coupled closure equations for the vortex line density and the anisotropy parameter $I_{l0}$ with an input of the normal and superfluid velocity fields. The various closure assumptions and the predictions of the resulting theory are tested against numerical simulations.

(2018). Turbulent statistics and intermittency enhancement in coflowing superfluid He4. PHYSICAL REVIEW FLUIDS. 3:(2)024605. Abstract
The large scale turbulent statistics of mechanically driven superfluid $^4$He was shown experimentally to follow the classical counterpart. In this paper we use direct numerical simulations to study the whole range of scales in a range of temperatures $T \in[1.3,2.1]$K. The numerics employ selfconsistent and nonlinearly coupled normal and superfluid components. The main results are that (i) the velocity fluctuations of normal and super components are wellcorrelated in the inertial range of scales, but decorrelate at small scales. (ii) The energy transfer by mutual friction between components is particularly efficient in the temperature range between 1.8K and 2K, leading to enhancement of small scales intermittency for these temperatures. (iii) At low $T$ and close to $T_{\lambda}$ the scaling properties of the energy spectra and structure functions of the two components are approaching those of classical hydrodynamic turbulence.

(2018). From Kinetic Instability to BoseEinstein Condensation and Magnon Supercurrents. Physical Review Letters. 121:(7)077203. Abstract
Evolution of an overpopulated gas of magnons to a BoseEinstein condensate and excitation of a magnon supercurrent, propelled by a phase gradient in the condensate wave function, can be observed at room temperature by means of the Brillouin light scattering spectroscopy in an yttrium iron garnet material. We study these phenomena in a wide range of external magnetic fields in order to understand their properties when externally pumped magnons are transferred towards the condensed state via two distinct channels: a multistage KolmogorovZakharov cascade of the weakwave turbulence or a onestep kinetic instability process. Our main result is that opening the kinetic instability channel leads to the formation of a much denser magnon condensate and to a stronger magnon supercurrent compared to the cascade mechanism alone.

(2018). Theory of energy spectra in superfluid 4 He counterflow turbulence. PHYSICAL REVIEW B. 97:(21)214513 . Abstract
In the thermally driven superfluid He4 turbulence, the counterflow velocity Uns partially decouples normal andsuperfluid turbulent velocities. Recently, we suggested [J. Low. Temp. Phys. 187, 497 (2017)] that this decouplingshould tremendously increase the turbulent energy dissipation by mutual friction and significantly suppressthe energy spectra. Comprehensive measurements of the apparent scaling exponent nexp of the secondordernormalfluid velocity structure function S2(r) ∝ rnexp in the counterflow turbulence [J. Gao et al., Phys. Rev. B96, 094511 (2017)] confirmed our scenario of gradual dependence of the turbulence statistics on flow parameters.We develop an analytical theory of the counterflow turbulence, accounting for a twofold mechanism of thisphenomenon: (i) a scaledependent competition between the turbulent velocity coupling by mutual friction andthe Unsinduced turbulent velocity decoupling and (ii) the turbulent energy dissipation by mutual friction enhancedby the velocity decoupling. The suggested theory predicts the energy spectra for a wide range of flow parameters.The mean exponents of the normalfluid energy spectra m10, found without fitting parameters, qualitativelyagree with the observed nexp+ 1 for T 1.85 K.

(2018). Spin Seebeck effect and ballistic transport of quasiacoustic magnons in roomtemperature yttrium iron garnet films. Journal Physics D: Applied Physics. 51:(23)234003. Abstract
We studied the transient behavior of the spin current generated by the longitudinal spin Seebeck effect (LSSE) in a set of platinumcoated yttrium iron garnet (YIG) films of different thicknesses. The LSSE was induced by means of pulsed microwave heating of the Pt layer and the spin currents were measured electrically using the inverse spin Hall effect in the same layer. We demonstrate that the time evolution of the LSSE is determined by the evolution of the thermal gradient triggering the flux of thermal magnons in the vicinity of the YIG/Pt interface. These magnons move ballistically within the YIG film with a constant group velocity, while their number decays exponentially within an effective propagation length. The ballistic flight of the magnons with energies above 20K is a result of their almost linear dispersion law, similar to that of acoustic phonons. By fitting the timedependent LSSE signal for different film thicknesses varying by almost an order of magnitude, we found that the effective propagation length is practically independent of the YIG film thickness. We consider this fact as strong support of a ballistic transport scenario  the ballistic propagation of quasiacoustic magnons in room temperature YIG.

(2018). Statistics of turbulence and intermittency enhancement in superfluid He4 counterflow. Physical Review B. 98:(174509)111. Abstract
We report a detailed analysis of the energy spectra, second and highorder structure functions of velocitydifferences in superfluid 4He counterflow turbulence, measured in a wide range of temperatures and heat fluxes.We show that the onedimensional energy spectrum Exz (ky ) (averaged over the xz plane, parallel to the channel wall), directly measured as a function of the wallnormal wave vector ky , gives more detailed information on theenergy distribution over scales than the corresponding secondorder structure function S2 (δy ). In particular, we discover two intervals of ky with different apparent exponents: Exz (ky ) ∝ ky−mC for k < k× and Exz (ky ) ∝ ky−mFor k > k×. Here k× denotes the wave number that separates scales with relatively strong (for k < k×) and elatively weak (for k> k×) coupling between the normalfluid and superfluid velocity components. We interpret these k ranges as cascadedominated and mutualfrictiondominated intervals, respectively. The general behavior of the experimental spectra Exz (ky ) agrees well with the predicted spectra [L’vov and Pomyalov, Phys. Rev. B 97, 214513 (2018)]. Analysis of the nthorder structure functions statistics shows that in the energycontaining interval, the statistics of counterflow turbulence is close to Gaussian, similar to the classical hydrodynamic turbulence. In the cascade and mutualfrictiondominated intervals, we found some modest enhancement of intermittency with respect to its level in classical turbulence. However, at small scales, the intermittency becomesmuch stronger than in the classical turbulence.

(2017). Bottleneck Accumulation of Hybrid Magnetoelastic Bosons. Physical Review Letters. 118:(23)237201. Abstract
An ensemble of magnons, quanta of spin waves, can be prepared as a Bose gas of weakly interacting quasiparticles. Furthermore, the thermalization of the overpopulated magnon gas through magnonmagnon scattering processes, which conserve the number of particles, can lead to the formation of a BoseEinstein condensate at the bottom of a spinwave spectrum. However, magnonphonon scattering can significantly modify this scenario and new quasiparticles are formedmagnetoelastic bosons. Our observations of a parametrically populated magnon gas in a singlecrystal film of yttrium iron garnet by means of wavevectorresolved Brillouin light scattering spectroscopy evidence a novel condensation phenomenon: A spontaneous accumulation of hybrid magnetoelastic bosonic quasiparticles at the intersection of the lowest magnon mode and a transversal acoustic wave.

(2017). Statistics of Quantum Turbulence in Superfluid He. Journal of Low Temperature Physics. 187:(56)497514. Abstract
Based on our current understanding of statistics of quantum turbulence as well as on results of intensive ongoing analytical, numerical and experimental studies, we overview here the following problems in the largescale, spacehomogeneous, steadystate turbulence of superfluid He4 and He3: (1) energy spectra of normal and superfluid velocity components; (2) crosscorrelation function of normal and superfluid velocities; (3) energy dissipation by mutual friction and viscosity; (4) energy exchange between normal and superfluid components; (5) highorder statistics and intermittency effects. The statistical properties are discussed for turbulence in different types of flows: coflow of He4; turbulent He3 with the laminar normal fluid; pure superflow and counterflow in He4.

(2017). Transition to Quantum Turbulence and Streamwise Inhomogeneity of Vortex Tangle in Thermal Counterflow. Journal of Low Temperature Physics. 187:(56)531537. Abstract
We report preliminary results of the complementary experimental and numerical studies on spatiotemporal tangle development and streamwise vortex line density (VLD) distribution in counterflowing He4. The experiment is set up in a long square channel with VLD and local temperature measured in three streamwise locations. In the steady state, we observe nearly streamwisehomogeneous VLD. Experimental secondsound data as well as numerical data (vortex filament method in a long planar channel starting with seeding vortices localized in multiple locations) show that the initial buildup pattern of VLD displays complex features depending on the position in the channel, but some tangle properties appear uniform along its length.

(2017). Complete Hamiltonian formalism for inertial waves in rotating fluids. Journal of Fluid Mechanics. 831:128150. Abstract
A complete Hamiltonian formalism is suggested for inertial waves in rotating incompressible fluids. Resonance threewave interaction processes  decay instability and confluence of two waves  are shown to play a key role in the weakly nonlinear dynamics and statistics of inertial waves in the rapid rotation case. Future applications of the Hamiltonian approach to inertial wave theory are investigated and discussed.

(2017). Local and nonlocal energy spectra of superfluid He 3 turbulence. Physical Review B. 95:(18)184510. Abstract
Below the phase transition temperature Tc≃103K He3B has a mixture of normal and superfluid components. Turbulence in this material is carried predominantly by the superfluid component. We explore the statistical properties of this quantum turbulence, stressing the differences from the better known classical counterpart. To this aim we study the timehonored HallVinenBekarevichKhalatnikov coarsegrained equations of superfluid turbulence. We combine pseudospectral direct numerical simulations with analytic considerations based on an integral closure for the energy flux. We avoid the assumption of locality of the energy transfer which was used previously in both analytic and numerical studies of the superfluid He3B turbulence. For T<0.37Tc, with relatively weak mutual friction, we confirm the previously found "subcritical" energy spectrum E(k), given by a superposition of two power laws that can be approximated as E(k)kx with an apparent scaling exponent 53<x(k)<3. For T>0.37Tc and with strong mutual friction, we observed numerically and confirmed analytically the scaleinvariant spectrum E(k)kx with a (kindependent) exponent x>3 that gradually increases with the temperature and reaches a value x∼9 for T≈0.72Tc. In the nearcritical regimes we discover a strong enhancement of intermittency which exceeds by an order of magnitude the corresponding level in classical hydrodynamic turbulence.

(2016). Counterflowinduced decoupling in superfluid turbulence. Physical Review B. 93:(1)014516 (8 pp.). Abstract
In mechanically driven superfluid turbulence, the mean velocities of the normal and superfluid components are known to coincide: U n=U s. Numerous laboratory, numerical, and analytical studies showed that under these conditions, the mutual friction between the normal and superfluid velocity components also couples their fluctuations: u n'(r,t)apu s'(r,t), almost at all scales. We show that this is not the case in thermally driven superfluid turbulence; here the counterflow velocity U nsequivU nU sne0. We suggest a simple analytic model for the crosscorrelation function u n'(r,t).u s'(r',t) and its dependence on U ns. We demonstrate that u n'(r,t) and u s'(r,t) are decoupled almost in the entire range of separations rr' between the energycontaining scale and intervortex distance.

(2016). Reply to "Comment on 'Dynamics of the density of quantized vortex lines in superfluid turbulence'". Physical Review B. 94:(14)146502. Abstract
This is a Reply to Nemirovskii's Comment [Phys. Rev. B 94, 146501 (2016)] on Khomenko et al. [Phys. Rev. B 91, 180504 (2015)] in which a new form of the production term in Vinen's equation for the evolution of the vortexline density L in the thermal counterflow of superfluid He4 in a channel was suggested. To further substantiate the suggested form which was questioned in the Comment, we present a physical explanation for the improvement of the closure suggested in Khomenko et al. [Phys. Rev. B 91, 180504 (2015)] in comparison to the form proposed by Vinen. We also discuss the closure for the flux term, which agrees well with the numerical results without any fitting parameters.

(2016). Mechanical momentum transfer in wallbounded superfluid turbulence. Physical Review B. 93:(13)134504 (7 pp). Abstract
In classical turbulence the kinematic viscosity. is involved in two phenomena. The first is the energy dissipation and the second is the mechanical momentum flux toward the wall. In superfluid turbulence the mechanism of energy dissipation is different, and it is determined by an effective viscosity which was introduced by Vinen and is denoted as nu'. In this paper we show that in superfluid turbulence the transfer of mechanical momentum to the wall is caused by the presence of a quantum vortex tangle, giving rise to another effective "momentum" viscosity that we denote as nu(m)(T). The temperature dependence of the second effective viscosity is markedly different from Vinen's effective viscosity nu' (T). We show that the notion of vortextension force, playing an important role in the theory of quantum turbulence, can be understood as the gradient of the Reynoldsstress tensor, which is, in fact, determined by the second newly defined kinematic viscosity nu(m)(T).

(2016). Coexistence and interplay of quantum and classical turbulence in superfluid He4: Decay, velocity decoupling, and counterflow energy spectra. Physical Review B. 94:(17)174504. Abstract
We report complementary experimental, numerical, and theoretical study of turbulent coflow, counterflow, and pure superflow of superfluid He4 in a channel, resulting in a physically transparent and relatively simple model of decaying quantum turbulence that accounts for interactions of coexisting quantum and classical components of turbulent superfluid He4. We further offer an analytical theory of the energy spectra of steadystate quantum turbulence in the counterflow and pure superflow, based on algebraic approximation for the energy fluxes over scales. The resulting spectra are not of the classic Kolmogorov form, but strongly suppressed by the mutual friction, leading to the energy dissipation at all scales, enhanced by the counterflowinduced decoupling of the normal and superfluid velocity fluctuations.

(2016). Supercurrent in a roomtemperature BoseEinstein magnon condensate. Nature Physics. 12:(11)10571062. Abstract
A supercurrent is a macroscopic effect of a phaseinduced collective motion of a quantum condensate. So far, experimentally observed supercurrent phenomena such as superconductivity and superfluidity have been restricted to cryogenic temperatures. Here, we report on the discovery of a supercurrent in a BoseEinstein magnon condensate prepared in a roomtemperature ferrimagnetic film. The magnon condensate is formed in a parametrically pumped magnon gas and is subject to a thermal gradient created by local laser heating of the film. The appearance of the supercurrent, which is driven by a thermally induced phase shift in the condensate wavefunction, is evidenced by analysis of the temporal evolution of the magnon density measured by means of Brillouin light scattering spectroscopy. Our findings offer opportunities for the investigation of roomtemperature macroscopic quantum phenomena and their potential applications at ambient conditions.

(2016). Decay of counterflow turbulence in superfluid He4. JETP Letters. 103:(10)648652. Abstract
We summarize recent experiments on thermal counterflow turbulence in superfluid He4, emphasizing the observation of turbulence in the normal fluid and its effect on the decay process when the heat flux is turned off. We argue that what is observed as turbulence in the normal fluid is a novel form of coupled turbulence in the superfluid and normal components, with injection of energy on the scales of both the (large) channel width and the (small) spacing between quantized vortices. Although an understanding of this coupled turbulence remains challenging, a theory of its decay is developed which accounts for the experimental observations.

(2015). Dynamics of the density of quantized vortex lines in superfluid turbulence. Physical Review B. 91:(18)180504(R) (5 pp). Abstract
The quantization of vortex lines in superfluids requires the introduction of their density L(r,t) in the description of quantum turbulence. The space homogeneous balance equation for L(t), proposed by Vinen on the basis of dimensional and physical considerations, allows a number of competing forms for the production term P. Attempts to choose the correct one on the basis of timedependent homogeneous experiments ended inconclusively. To overcome this difficulty we announce here an approach that employs an inhomogeneous channel flow which is very suitable to distinguish the implications of the various possible forms of the desired equation. We demonstrate that the originally selected form which was extensively used in the literature is in strong contradiction with our data. We therefore present a new form of an inhomogeneous equation for L(r,t) that is in agreement with our data and propose that it should be considered for further studies of superfluid turbulence.

(2015). Energy and vorticity spectra in turbulent superfluid 4He from T=0 to Tλ. Physical Review B. 91:(14)144501 (19 pp). Abstract
We discuss the energy and vorticity spectra of turbulent superfluid He4 in the entire temperature range from T = 0 up to the phase transition "gimel point," T gimel similar or equal to 2.17 K. Contrary to classical developed turbulence in which there are only two typical scales, i.e., the energy injection L and the dissipation scales eta, here, the quantization of vorticity introduces two additional scales, the vortex core radius a(0) and the mean vortex spacing l. We present these spectra for the superand the normalfluid components in the entire range of scales from L to a(0) including the crossover scale l where the hydrodynamic eddy cascade is replaced by the cascade of Kelvin waves on individual vortices. At this scale, a bottleneck accumulation of the energy was found earlier at T = 0. We show that even very small mutual friction dramatically suppresses the bottleneck effect due to the dissipation of the Kelvin waves. Using our results for the spectra we estimate the Vinen "effective viscosity" nu' in the entire temperature range and show agreement with numerous experimental observations for. nu' (T).

(2014). EulerianLagrangian bridge for the energy and dissipation spectra in isotropic turbulence. Theoretical and Computational Fluid Dynamics. 28:(2)197213. Abstract
We study, numerically and analytically, the relationship between the Eulerian spectrum of kinetic energy, E (E)(k, t), in isotropic turbulence and the corresponding Lagrangian frequency energy spectrum, E (L)(omega, t), for which we derive an evolution equation. Our DNS results show that not only E (L)(omega, t) but also the Lagrangian frequency spectrum of the dissipation rate has its maximum at low frequencies (about the turnover frequency of energycontaining eddies) and decays exponentially at large frequencies omega (about a half of the Kolmogorov microscale frequency) for both stationary and decaying isotropic turbulence. Our main analytical result is the derivation of equations that bridge the Eulerian and Lagrangian spectra and allow the determination of the Lagrangian spectrum, E (L) (omega) for a given Eulerian spectrum, E (E) (k), as well as the Lagrangian dissipation, , for a given Eulerian counterpart, . These equations were derived from the NavierStokes equations in the sweepingfree coordinate system (intermediate between the Eulerian and Lagrangian frameworks) which eliminates the effect of the kinematic sweeping of the small eddies by the larger eddies. We show that both analytical relationships between E (L) (omega) and E (E) (k) and between and are in very good quantitative agreement with our DNS results and explain how has its maximum at low frequencies and decays exponentially at large frequencies.

(2014). Viscosity of liquid He4 and quantum of circulation: Are they related?. Physics of Fluids. 26:(4)041703 (5 pp). Abstract
In the vicinity of the superfluid transition in liquid He4, we explore the relation between two apparently unrelated physical quantitiesthe kinematic viscosity, nu, in the normal state and the quantum of circulation, kappa, in the superfluid state. The model developed here leads to the simple relationship nu approximate to kappa/6, and links the classical and quantum flow properties of liquid He4. We critically examine available data relevant to this relation and find that the prediction holds well at the saturated vapor pressure. Additionally, we predict the kinematic viscosity for liquid He4 along the lambdaline at negative pressures. (C) 2014 AIP Publishing LLC.

(2014). Experimental, numerical, and analytical velocity spectra in turbulent quantum fluid. Proceedings Of The National Academy Of Sciences Of The United States Of America . 111:46834690. Abstract
Turbulence in superfluid helium is unusual and presents a challenge to fluid dynamicists because it consists of two coupled, interpenetrating turbulent fluids: the first is inviscid with quantized vorticity, and the second is viscous with continuous vorticity. Despite this double nature, the observed spectra of the superfluid turbulent velocity at sufficiently large length scales are similar to those of ordinary turbulence. We present experimental, numerical, and theoretical results that explain these similarities, and illustrate the limits of our present understanding of superfluid turbulence at smaller scales.

(2014). Structure of a quantum vortex tangle in He4 counterflow turbulence. Physical Review B. 89:(1)094501 (23 pp). Abstract
The paper presents a comprehensive characterization of welldeveloped vortex tangles in a turbulent counterflow in quantum fluids (with a laminar normal fluid component). We perform and analyze extensive numerical simulations using the vortex filament method, solving the full BiotSavart equations for the vortex dynamics in a wide range of temperatures and counterflow velocities. We start with the analysis of the macroscopic characteristics of the quantum vortex tangle such as vortex line density, its mean anisotropic and curvature parameters, the mean friction force between normal and superfluid components, the drift velocity of the vortex tangle, etc. Next we proceed to the main goal of the paper and move from the traditional macroscopic approach in terms of mean characteristics of the vortex tangle to the microscopic statistical and kinetic levels of description of quantum turbulence. These include objects that are much less studied or even totally neglected such as the vortex reconnection rates, the correlations and probability distribution functions (PDFs) of the vortex loop lengths, of the line curvature, of the mean curvatures of individual loops, the crosscorrelation function between the loop length and its mean curvature, and the autocorrelation function of the vortexline orientations. This detailed statistical information is required for a deeper understanding of quantum turbulence and for the development of its advanced theoretical description. In addition, we identify which of the studied properties are strongly affected by the choice of the reconnection criteria that are traditionally used in the vortex filament method and which of them are practically insensitive to the reconnection procedure. We conclude that the vortex filament method is sufficiently robust and wellsuited for the description of the steadystate vortex tangle in the quantum counterflow.

(2014). Evolution of a neutroninitiated micro big bang in superfluid He3B. Physical Review B. 90:(2)024508 (5 pp). Abstract
A nuclear capture reaction of a single neutron by ultracold superfluid He3 results in a rapid overheating followed by the expansion and subsequent cooling of the hot subregion, in a certain analogy with the big bang of the early universe. It was shown in a Grenoble experiment that a significant part of the energy released during the nuclear reaction was not converted into heat even after several seconds. It was thought that the missing energy was stored in a tangle of quantized vortex lines. This explanation, however, contradicts the expected lifetime of a bulk vortex tangle, 10(5)10(4) s, which is much shorter than the observed time delay of seconds. In this paper we propose a scenario that resolves the contradiction: the vortex tangle, created by the hot spot, emits isolated vortex loops that take with them a significant part of the tangle's energy. These loops quickly reach the container walls. The dilute ensemble of vortex loops attached to the walls can survive for a long time, while the remaining bulk vortex tangle decays quickly.

(2013). Energy and angular momentum balance in wallbounded quantum turbulence at very low temperatures. Nature Communications. 4: 1614 (5 pp). Abstract
A superfluid in the absence of a viscous normal component should be the best realization of an ideal inviscid Euler fluid. As expressed by d'Alembert's famous paradox, an ideal fluid does not drag on bodies past which it flows, or in other words it does not exchange momentum with them. In addition, the flow of an ideal fluid does not dissipate kinetic energy. Here we study experimentally whether these properties apply to the flow of superfluid He3B in a rotating cylinder at low temperatures. It is found that ideal behaviour is broken by quantum turbulence, which leads to substantial energy dissipation, as was also observed earlier. Remarkably, the angular momentum exchange between the superfluid and its container approaches nearly ideal behaviour, as the drag almost disappears in the zerotemperature limit. Here the mismatch between energy and angular momentum transfer results in a new physical situation, with severe implications on the flow dynamics.

(2013). Analytic Solution of the Approach of Quantum Vortices Towards Reconnection. Physical Review Letters. 111:(14)145302 (4 pp). Abstract
Experimental and simulational studies of the dynamics of vortex reconnections in quantum fluids showed that the distance d between the reconnecting vortices is close to a universal time dependence d = D[kappa vertical bar t(0)  t vertical bar](alpha) with alpha fluctuating around 1/2 and kappa = h/m is the quantum of circulation. Dimensional analysis, based on the assumption that the quantum of circulation kappa = h/m is the only relevant parameter in the problem, predicts alpha = 1/2. The theoretical calculation of the dimensionless coefficient D in this formula remained an open problem. In this Letter we present an analytic calculation of D in terms of the given geometry of the reconnecting vortices. We start from the numerically observed generic geometry on the way to vortex reconnection and demonstrate that the dynamics is well described by a selfsimilar analytic solution which provides the wanted information.

(2013). Enhancement of Intermittency in Superfluid Turbulence. Physical Review Letters. 110:(1)014502 (5 pp). Abstract
We consider the intermittent behavior of superfluid turbulence in He4. Because of the similarity in the nonlinear structure of the twofluid model of superfluidity and the Euler and NavierStokes equations, one expects the scaling exponents of the structure functions to be the same as in classical turbulence for temperatures close to the superfluid transition Tlambda and also for T

(2012). HighTc Spin Superfluidity in Antiferromagnets. Physical Review Letters. 108:(17)177002 (5 pp). Abstract
We report the observation of the unusual behavior of induction decay signals in antiferromagnetic monocrystals with SuhlNakamura interactions. The signals show the formation of the BoseEinstein condensation (BEC) of magnons and the existence of spin supercurrent, in complete analogy with the spin superfluidity in the superfluid He3 and the atomic BEC of quantum gases. In the experiments described here, the temperature of the magnon BEC is a thousand times larger than in the superfluid He3. It opens a possibility to apply the spin supercurrent for various magnetic spintronics applications.

We comment on the paper by Sonin [Phys. Rev. B 85, 104516 (2012)] with most statements of which we disagree. We use this option to shed light on some important issues of a theory of Kelvinwave turbulence, touched on in Sonin's paper, in particular, on the relation between the Vinen spectrum of strong and the L'vovNazarenko spectrum of weak turbulence of Kelvin waves. We also discuss the role of explicit calculation of the Kelvinwave interaction Hamiltonian and "symmetry arguments" that have to resolve a contradiction between the KozikSvistunov and the L'vovNazarenko spectrum of weak turbulence of Kelvin waves.

(2012). Analytical modeling for heat transfer in sheared flows of nanofluids. Physical Review E. 86:(1)016302 (13 pp). Abstract
We developed a model for the enhancement of the heat flux by spherical and elongated nanoparticles in sheared laminar flows of nanofluids. Besides the heat flux carried by the nanoparticles, the model accounts for the contribution of their rotation to the heat flux inside and outside the particles. The rotation of the nanoparticles has a twofold effect: it induces a fluid advection around the particle and it strongly influences the statistical distribution of particle orientations. These dynamical effects, which were not included in existing thermal models, are responsible for changing the thermal properties of flowing fluids as compared to quiescent fluids. The proposed model is strongly supported by extensive numerical simulations, demonstrating a potential increase of the heat flux far beyond the MaxwellGarnett limit for the spherical nanoparticles. The road ahead, which should lead toward robust predictive models of heat flux enhancement, is discussed.

(2012). Temperature suppression of Kelvinwave turbulence in superfluids. Epl. 99:(4) 46003 (6 pp). Abstract
Kelvin waves propagating on quantum vortices play a crucial role in the phenomenology of energy dissipation of superfluid turbulence. Previous theoretical studies have consistently focused on the zerotemperature limit of the statistical physics of Kelvinwave turbulence. In this letter, we go beyond this athermal limit by introducing a small but finite temperature in the form of nonzero mutual friction dissipative force; A situation regularly encountered in actual experiments of superfluid turbulence. In this case we show that there exists a new typical length scale separating a quasiinertial range of Kelvinwave turbulence from a fardissipation range. The letter culminates with analytical predictions for the energy spectrum of the Kelvinwave turbulence in both of these regimes. Copyright (C) EPLA, 2012

(2012). Energy spectra of superfluid turbulence in He3. Physical Review B. 85:(10)177002 (5 pp). Abstract
In superfluid He3B, turbulence is carried predominantly by the superfluid component. To explore the statistical properties of this quantum turbulence and its differences from the classical counterpart, we adopt the timehonored approach of shell models. Using this approach, we provide numerical simulations of a Sabra shell model that allows us to uncover the nature of the energy spectrum in the relevant hydrodynamic regimes. These results are in qualitative agreement with analytical expressions for the superfluid turbulent energy spectra that were found using a differential approximation for the energy flux.

(2011). Exact solution for the energy spectrum of Kelvinwave turbulence in superfluids. Physical Review B. 84:(6)064516 (10 pp). Abstract
We study the statistical and dynamical behavior of turbulent Kelvin waves propagating on quantized vortices in superfluids and address the controversy concerning the energy spectrum that is associated with these excitations. Finding the correct energy spectrum is important because Kelvin waves play a major role in the dissipation of energy in superfluid turbulence at nearzero temperatures. In this paper, we show analytically that the solution proposed by [L'vov and Nazarenko, JETP Lett. 91, 428 (2010)] enjoys existence, uniqueness, and regularity of the prefactor. Furthermore, we present numerical results of the dynamical equation that describes to leading order the nonlocal regime of the Kelvinwave dynamics. We compare our findings with the analytical results from the proposed local and nonlocal theories for Kelvinwave dynamics and show an agreement with the nonlocal predictions. Accordingly, the spectrum proposed by L'vov and Nazarenko should be used in future theories of quantum turbulence. Finally, for weaker wave forcing we observe an intermittent behavior of the wave spectrum with a fluctuating dissipative scale, which we interpreted as a finitesize effect characteristic of mesoscopic wave turbulence.

Steadystate turbulent motion is created in superfluid He3B at low temperatures in the form of a turbulent vortex front, which moves axially along a rotating cylindrical container of He3B and replaces vortexfree flow with vortex lines at constant density. We present the first measurements on the thermal signal from dissipation as a function of time, recorded at 0:2T(c) during the front motion, which is monitored using NMR techniques. Both the measurements and the numerical calculations of the vortex dynamics show that at low temperatures the density of the propagating vortices falls well below the equilibrium value, i.e., the superfluid rotates at a smaller angular velocity than the container. This is the first evidence for the decoupling of the superfluid from the container reference frame in the zerotemperature limit.

(2011). Energy spectra of quantum turbulence: Largescale simulation and modeling. Physical Review B. 84:(5)054525 (6 pp). Abstract
In a 2048(3) simulation of quantum turbulence within the GrossPitaevskii equation, it is demonstrated that the largescale motions have a classical Kolmogorov1941 energy spectrum E(k) proportional to k(5/3), followed by an energy accumulation with E(k) similar or equal to const at k about the reciprocal mean intervortex distance. This behavior was predicted by the L'vovNazarenkoRudenko bottleneck model of gradual eddywave crossover [L'vov, Nazarenko, and Rudenko, J. Low Temp. Phys. 153, 140 (2008)], further developed in the paper.

We considered symmetry restriction on the interaction coefficients of Kelvin waves and demonstrated that linear in small wave vector asymptotic, obtained analytically, is not forbidden, as one can expect by naive reasoning. Therefore now we have no reason to doubt in this asymptote, that results in the L'vovNazarenko energy spectrum of Kelvin waves.

(2010). Discrete and mesoscopic regimes of finitesize wave turbulence. Physical Review E. 82:(5)056322 (11 pp). Abstract
Bounding volume results in discreteness of eigenmodes in wave systems. This leads to a depletion or complete loss of wave resonances (threewave, fourwave, etc.), which has a strong effect on wave turbulence (WT) i.e., on the statistical behavior of broadband sets of weakly nonlinear waves. This paper describes three different regimes of WT realizable for different levels of the wave excitations: discrete, mesoscopic and kinetic WT. Discrete WT comprises chaotic dynamics of interacting wave "clusters" consisting of discrete (often finite) number of connected resonant wave triads (or quarters). Kinetic WT refers to the infinitebox theory, described by wellknown wavekinetic equations. Mesoscopic WT is a regime in which either the discrete and the kinetic evolutions alternate or when none of these two types is purely realized. We argue that in mesoscopic systems the wave spectrum experiences a sandpile behavior. Importantly, the mesoscopic regime is realized for a broad range of wave amplitudes which typically spans over several orders on magnitude, and not just for a particular intermediate level.

(2010). Spectrum of Kelvinwave turbulence in superfluids. JETP Letters. 91:(8)428434. Abstract
We derive a type of kinetic equation for Kelvin waves on quantized vortex filaments with random largescale curvature, that describes stepbystep (local) energy cascade over scales caused by 4wave interactions. Resulting new energy spectrum E (LN)(k) ae k (5/3) must replace in future theory (e.g., in finding the quantum turbulence decay rate) the previously used spectrum E (KS)(k) ae k (7/5), which was recently shown to be inconsistent due to nonlocality of the 6wave energy cascade.

The physics of smallscale quantum turbulence in superfluids is essentially based on knowledge of the energy spectrum of Kelvin waves, E(k). Here we derive a new type of kinetic equation for Kelvin waves on quantized vortex filaments with random largescale curvature which describes a stepbystep energy cascade over scales resulting from fivewave interactions. This approach replaces the earlier sixwave theory, which has recently been shown to be inconsistent owing to nonlocalization Solving the fourwave kinetic equation, we found a new local spectrum with a universal (curvatureindependent) exponent, E(k) proportional to k(5/3), which must replace the nonlocal spectrum of the sixwave theory, E(k) proportional to k(7/5) in any future theory, e.g., when determining the quantum turbulence decay rate, found by Kosik and Svistunov under an incorrect assumption of locality of energy transfer in sixwave interactions.

In the Ref. (Lebedev and L'vov in J. Low Temp. Phys. 161, 2010, doi:10.1007/s1090901002152), this issue, two of us (VVL and VSL) considered symmetry restriction on the interaction coefficients of Kelvin waves and demonstrated that linear in small wave vector asymptotic, obtained analytically, is not forbidden, as Kosik and Svistunov (KS) expect by naive reasoning. Here we discuss this problem in additional details and show that theoretical objections by KS, presented in Ref. (Kozik and Svistunov in J. Low Temp. Phys. 161, 2010, doi:10.1007/s109090100242z), this issue, are irrelevant and their recent numerical simulation, presented in Ref. (Kozik and Svistunov in arXiv:1007.4927v1, 2010) is hardly convincing. There is neither proof of locality nor any refutation of the possibility of linear asymptotic of interaction vertices in the KS texts, Refs. (Kozik and Svistunov in J. Low Temp. Phys. 161, 2010, doi: 10.1007/s109090100242z; arXiv:1006.0506v1, 2010). Therefore we can state again that we have no reason to doubt in this asymptote, that results in the L'vovNazarenko energy spectrum of Kelvin waves.

(2010). Stability and Dissipation of Laminar Vortex Flow in Superfluid He3B. Physical Review Letters. 105:(12)125301 (4 pp). Abstract
A central question in the dynamics of vortex lines in superfluids is dissipation on approaching the zero temperature limit T > 0. From both NMR measurements and vortex filament calculations, we find that vortex flow remains laminar up to large Reynolds numbers Realpha similar to 10(3) in a cylinder filled with He3B. This is different from viscous fluids and superfluid He4, where the corresponding responses are turbulent. In He3B, laminar vortex flow is possible in the bulk volume even in the presence of sizable perturbations from axial symmetry to below 0.2T(c). The laminar flow displays no excess dissipation beyond mutual friction, which vanishes in the T > 0 limit, in contrast with turbulent vortex motion where dissipation has been earlier measured to approach a large Tindependent value at T less than or similar to 0.2T(c).

(2010). Direct energy cascade in twodimensional compressible quantum turbulence. Physical Review A. 81:(6)063630 (12 pp). Abstract
We numerically study twodimensional quantum turbulence with a GrossPitaevskii model. With the energy initially accumulated at large scale, quantum turbulence with many quantized vortex points is generated. Due to the lack of enstrophy conservation in this model, direct energy cascade with a KolmogorovObukhov energy spectrum E(k) proportional to k(5/3) is observed, which is quite different from twodimensional incompressible classical turbulence in the decaying case. A positive value for the energy flux guarantees a direct energy cascade in the inertial range (from large to small scales). After almost all the energy at the large scale cascades to the small scale, the compressible kinetic energy realizes the thermodynamic equilibrium state without quantized vortices.

(2010). Interaction of Kelvin waves and nonlocality of energy transfer in superfluids. Physical Review B. 81:(10)104526 (14 pp). Abstract
We argue that the physics of interacting Kelvin Waves (KWs) is highly nontrivial and cannot be understood on the basis of pure dimensional reasoning. A consistent theory of KW turbulence in superfluids should be based upon explicit knowledge of their interactions. To achieve this, we present a detailed calculation and comprehensive analysis of the interaction coefficients for KW turbuelence, thereby, resolving previous mistakes stemming from unaccounted contributions. As a first application of this analysis, we derive a local nonlinear (partial differential) equation. This equation is much simpler for analysis and numerical simulations of KWs than the BiotSavart equation, and in contrast to the completely integrable local induction approximation (in which the energy exchange between KWs is absent), describes the nonlinear dynamics of KWs. Second, we show that the previously suggested KozikSvistunov energy spectrum for KWs, which has often been used in the analysis of experimental and numerical data in superfluid turbulence, is irrelevant, because it is based upon an erroneous assumption of the locality of the energy transfer through scales. Moreover, we demonstrate the weak nonlocality of the inverse cascade spectrum with a constant particlenumber flux and find resulting logarithmic corrections to this spectrum.

(2009). Energy and FluxBudget Turbulence Closure Model for Stably Stratified Flows. Part II: The Role of Internal Gravity Waves. BoundaryLayer Meteorology. 133:(2)139164. Abstract
We advance our prior energy and fluxbudget (EFB) turbulence closure model for stably stratified atmospheric flow and extend it to account for an additional vertical flux of momentum and additional productions of turbulent kinetic energy (TKE), turbulent potential energy (TPE) and turbulent flux of potential temperature due to largescale internal gravity waves (IGW). For the stationary, homogeneous regime, the first version of the EFB model disregarding largescale IGW yielded universal dependencies of the flux Richardson number, turbulent Prandtl number, energy ratios, and normalised vertical fluxes of momentum and heat on the gradient Richardson number, Ri. Due to the largescale IGW, these dependencies lose their universality. The maximal value of the flux Richardson number (universal constant a parts per thousand 0.20.25 in the noIGW regime) becomes strongly variable. In the vertically homogeneous stratification, it increases with increasing wave energy and can even exceed 1. For heterogeneous stratification, when internal gravity waves propagate towards stronger stratification, the maximal flux Richardson number decreases with increasing wave energy, reaches zero and then becomes negative. In other words, the vertical flux of potential temperature becomes countergradient. Internal gravity waves also reduce the anisotropy of turbulence: in contrast to the mean wind shear, which generates only horizontal TKE, internal gravity waves generate both horizontal and vertical TKE. Internal gravity waves also increase the share of TPE in the turbulent total energy (TTE = TKE + TPE). A wellknown effect of internal gravity waves is their direct contribution to the vertical transport of momentum. Depending on the direction (downward or upward), internal gravity waves either strengthen or weaken the total vertical flux of momentum. Predictions from the proposed model are consistent with available data from atmospheric and laboratory experiments, direct numerical sim

(2009). Energy conservation and secondorder statistics in stably stratified turbulent boundary layers. Environmental Fluid Mechanics. 9:(3)267295. Abstract
We address the dynamical and statistical description of stably stratified turbulent boundary layers with the important example of the atmospheric boundary layer with a stable temperature stratification in mind. Traditional approaches to this problem, based on the profiles of mean quantities, velocity secondorder correlations, and dimensional estimates of the turbulent thermal flux run into a wellknown difficulty, predicting the suppression of turbulence at a small critical value of the Richardson number, in contradiction with observations. Phenomenological attempts to overcome this problem suffer from various theoretical inconsistencies. Here we present a closure approach taking into full account all the secondorder statistics, which allows us to respect the conservation of total mechanical energy. The analysis culminates in an analytic solution of the profiles of all mean quantities and all secondorder correlations removing the unphysical predictions of previous theories. We propose that the approach taken here is sufficient to describe the lower parts of the atmospheric boundary layer, as long as the Richardson number does not exceed an order of unity. For much higher Richardson numbers the physics may change qualitatively, requiring careful consideration of the potential KelvinHelmoholtz waves and their interaction with the vortical turbulence.

(2009). Turbulent Dynamics in Rotating Helium Superfluids. Progress In Low Temperature Physics: Quantum Turbulence, Vol 16. 16:45146. Abstract
New techniques, both for generating and detecting turbulence in the helium superfluids He3B and He4, have recently given insight in how turbulence is started, what the dissipation mechanisms are, and how turbulence decays when it appears as a transient state or when externally applied turbulent pumping is switched off. Important simplifications are obtained by using He3B as working fluid, where the highly viscous normal component is practically always in a state of laminar flow, or by cooling He4 to low temperatures where the normal fraction becomes vanishingly small. We describe recent studies from the low temperature regime, where mutual friction becomes small or practically vanishes. This allows us to elucidate the mechanisms at work in quantum turbulence on approaching the zero temperature limit.

(2009). Finitedimensional turbulence of planetary waves. Physical Review E. 80:(6)066319 (25 pp). Abstract
Finitedimensional wave turbulence refers to the chaotic dynamics of interacting wave "clusters" consisting of finite number of connected wave triads with exact threewave resonances. We examine this phenomenon using the example of atmospheric planetary (Rossby) waves. It is shown that the dynamics of the clusters is determined by the types of connections between neighboring triads within a cluster; these correspond to substantially different scenarios of energy flux between different triads. All the possible cases of the energy cascade termination are classified. Free and forced chaotic dynamics in the clusters are investigated: due to the huge fluctuations of the energy exchange between resonant triads these two types of evolution have a lot in common. It is confirmed that finitedimensional wave turbulence in finite wave systems is fundamentally different from kinetic wave turbulence in infinite systems; the latter is described by wavekinetic equations that account for interactions with overlapping quasiresonances of finite amplitude waves. The present results are directly applicable to finitedimensional wave turbulence in any wave system in finite domains with threemode interactions as encountered in hydrodynamics, astronomy, plasma physics, chemistry, medicine, etc.

(2009). Velocity and energy profiles in two versus threedimensional channels: Effects of an inverse versus a directenergy cascade. Physical Review E. 79:(4)045304(R) (4 pp). Abstract
In light of some recent experiments on quasi twodimensional (2D) turbulent channel flow we provide here a model of the ideal case, for the sake of comparison. The ideal 2D channel flow differs from its threedimensional (3D) counterpart by having a second quadratic conserved variable in addition to the energy and the latter has an inverse rather than a direct cascade. The resulting qualitative differences in profiles of velocity V and energy K as a function of the distance from the wall are highlighted and explained. The most glaring difference is that the 2D channel is much more energetic, with K in wall units increasing logarithmically with the Reynolds number Re(tau) instead of being Re(tau) independent in 3D channels.

We present experimental and theoretical results addressing the Reynolds number (Re) dependence of drag reduction by sufficiently large concentrations of rodlike polymers in turbulent wallbounded flows. It is shown that when Re is small the drag is enhanced. On the other hand, when Re increases, the drag is reduced and eventually, the maximal drag reduction asymptote is attained. The theory is shown to be in agreement with experiments, explaining the universal and rationalizing some of the the nonuniversal aspects of drag reduction by rodlike polymers.

(2008). Random vortexstreet model for a selfsimilar plane turbulent jet. Physical Review Letters. 101:(9)094503 (4 pp). Abstract
We ask what determines the (small) angle of turbulent jets. To answer this question we first construct a deterministic vortexstreet model representing the largescale structure in a selfsimilar plane turbulent jet. Without adjustable parameters the model reproduces the mean velocity profiles and the transverse positions of the largescale structures, including their mean sweeping velocities, in a quantitative agreement with experiments. Nevertheless, the exact selfsimilar arrangement of the vortices (or any other deterministic model) necessarily leads to a collapse of the jet angle. The observed (small) angle results from a competition between vortex sweeping tending to strongly collapse the jet and randomness in the vortex structure, with the latter resulting in a weak spreading of the jet.

The model provides an accurate quantitative description of the profiles of the meanvelocity and Reynolds stresses (second order correlations of velocity fluctuations) throughout the entire channel or pipe, for a wide range of Re, using only three Reindependent parameters. The model sheds light on the longstanding controversy between supporters of the centuryold loglaw theory of von Karman and Prandtl and proposers of a newer theory promoting power laws to describe the intermediate region of the mean velocity profile.

This paper is part of an invited talk given at the international conference 'Turbulent Mixing and Beyond'. We consider nonisothermal fluid flows and revise simplifications of basic hydrodynamic equations for such flows, arriving eventually at a generalization of the OberbeckBoussinesq approximation valid for arbitrary equation of state including both nonideal gases as well as liquids. The proposed approach is based on a suggested general definition of potential temperature. Special attention is paid to the energy conservation principle: the proposed approximation exactly preserves the total mechanical energy by approximate equations of motion. It is emphasized explicitly the importance for any turbulent boundary layer model to respect the conservation laws.

(2008). Colloquium: Theory of drag reduction by polymers in wallbounded turbulence. Reviews of Modern Physics. 80:(1)225247. Abstract
The flow of fluids in channels, pipes, or ducts, as in any other wallbounded flow (like water along the hulls of ships or air on airplanes) is hindered by a drag, which increases manyfold when the fluid flow turns from laminar to turbulent. A major technological problem is how to reduce this drag in order to minimize the expense of transporting fluids like oil in pipelines, or to move ships in the ocean. It was discovered that minute concentrations of polymers can reduce the drag in turbulent flows by up to 80%. While experimental knowledge had accumulated over the years, the fundamental theory of drag reduction by polymers remained elusive for a long time, with arguments raging whether this is a "skin" or a "bulk" effect. In this Colloquium the phenomenology of drag reduction by polymers is summarized, stressing both its universal and nonuniversal aspects, and a recent theory is reviewed that provides a quantitative explanation of all the known phenomenology. Both flexible and rodlike polymers are treated, explaining the existence of universal properties like the maximum drag reduction asymptote, as well as nonuniversal crossover phenomena that depend on the Reynolds number, on the nature of the polymer and on its concentration. Finally other agents for drag reduction are discussed with a stress on the important example of bubbles.

(2007). Clustering of aerosols in atmospheric turbulent flow. Environmental Fluid Mechanics. 7:(2)173193. Abstract
A mechanism of formation of smallscale inhomogeneities in spatial distributions of aerosols and droplets associated with clustering instability in the atmospheric turbulent flow is discussed. The particle clustering is a consequence of a spontaneous breakdown of their homogeneous space distribution due to the clustering instability, and is caused by a combined effect of the particle inertia and a finite correlation time of the turbulent velocity field. In this paper a theoretical approach proposed in Elperin et al. (2002) Phys Rev E 66:036302 is further developed and applied to investigate the mechanisms of formation of smallscale aerosol inhomogeneities in the atmospheric turbulent flow. The theory of the particle clustering instability is extended to the case when the particle Stokes time is larger than the Kolmogorov time scale, but is much smaller than the correlation time at the integral scale of turbulence. We determined the criterion of the clustering instability for the Stokes number larger than 1. We discussed applications of the analyzed effects to the dynamics of aerosols and droplets in the atmospheric turbulent flow.

(2007). Bottleneck crossover between classical and quantum superfluid turbulence. Physical Review B. 76:(2)024520 (9 pp). Abstract
We consider superfluid turbulence near absolute zero of temperature generated by classical means, e.g., towed grid or rotation but not by counterflow. We argue that such turbulence consists of a polarized tangle of mutually interacting vortex filaments with quantized vorticity. For this system, we predict and describe a bottleneck accumulation of the energy spectrum at the classicalquantum crossover scale center dot. Demanding the same energy flux through scales, the value of the energy at the crossover scale should exceed the Kolmogorov41 (K41) spectrum by a large factor ln(10/3)(center dot/a(0)) (center dot is the mean intervortex distance and a(0) is the vortex core radius) for the classical and quantum spectra to be matched in value. One of the important consequences of the bottleneck is that it causes the mean vortex line density to be considerably higher than that based on K41 alone, and this should be taken into account in (re)interpretation of new (and old) experiments as well as in further theoretical studies.

We show that the nature of the front changes from laminar through quasiclassical turbulent to quantum turbulent with decreasing temperature. Our experiment provides the first direct measurement of the dissipation rate in turbulent vortex dynamics of He3B and demonstrates that the dissipation becomes mutualfriction independent with decreasing temperature, and it is strongly suppressed when the Kelvinwave cascade on vortex lines is predicted to be involved in the turbulent energy transfer to smaller length scales.

(2006). Differential model for 2D turbulence. JETP Letters. 83:(12)541545. Abstract
We present a phenomenological model for 2D turbulence in which the energy spectrum obeys a nonlinear fourthorder differential equation. This equation respects the scaling properties of the original NavierStokes equations, and it has both the 5/3 inversecascade and the 3 directcascade spectra. In addition, our model has RaleighJeans thermodynamic distributions as exact steady state solutions. We use the model to derive a relation between the directcascade and the inversecascade Kolmogorov constants, which is in good qualitative agreement with the laboratory and numerical experiments. We discuss a steady state solution where both the enstrophy and the energy cascades are present simultaneously, and we discuss it in the context of the NastromGage spectrum observed in atmospheric turbulence. We also consider the effect of the bottom friction on the cascade solutions and show that it leads to an additional decrease and finitewavenumber cutoffs of the respective cascade spectra, which agrees with the existing experimental and numerical results.

This discussion is inspired by the critical comment of I.A. Fomin (JETP Lett., this issue) related to the above questions. In addition, we considered here the results of direct numerical solution of the full LeggettTakagi equation of motion for magnetization in He3B and experimental data for the magnetic field dependence of the catastrophic relaxation that provide solid support for the theory of this phenomenon presented in our 2006 JETP Letter.

(2006). Solution of the problem of catastrophic relaxation of homogeneous spin precession in superfluid He3B. JETP Letters. 83:(12)530535. Abstract
The quantitative analysis of the "catastrophic relaxation" of the coherent spin precession in He3B is presented. This phenomenon has been observed below a temperature of about 0.5 Tc as an abrupt shortening of the induction signal decay. It is explained in terms of the decay instability of the homogeneous transverse NMR mode into spin waves of the longitudinal NMR. Recently, the cross interaction amplitude between the two modes has been calculated by Sourovtsev and Fomin [9] for the socalled BrinkmanSmith configuration, i.e., for the orientation of the orbital momentum of Cooper pairs along the magnetic field, L parallel to H. In their treatment, the interaction is caused by the anisotropy of the speed of the spin waves. We found that, in the more general case of the nonparallel orientation of L corresponding to the typical conditions of the experiment, the spinorbital interaction provides the additional interaction between the modes. By analyzing the experimental data, we are able to distinguish which contribution is dominating in different regimes.

Turbulent boundary layers exhibit a universal structure that nevertheless is rather complex and is composed of a viscous sublayer, a buffer zone, and a turbulent loglaw region. In this letter, we present a simple analytic model of turbulent boundary layers that culminates in explicit formulas for the profiles of the mean velocity, the kinetic energy, and the Reynolds stress as a function of the distance from the wall. The resulting profiles are in close quantitative agreement with measurements over the entire structure of the boundary layer without any need of refitting in the different zones.

(2006). Energy spectra of developed turbulence in helium superfluids. Journal of Low Temperature Physics. 145:(4Jan)125142. Abstract
We suggest a "minimal model" for the 3D turbulent energy spectra in superfluids, based on their twofluid description. We start from the NavierStokes equation for the normal fluid and from the coarsegrained hydrodynamic equation for the superfluid component (obtained from the Euler equation for the superfluid velocity after averaging over the vortex lines) and introduce a mutual friction coupling term, proportional to the counterflow velocity, the average superfluid vorticity and to the temperature dependent parameter q = alpha/(1+alpha'), where alpha and alpha' denote the dimensionless parameters characterizing the mutual friction between quantized vortices and the normal component of the liquid. We then derive the energy balance equations, taking into account the crossvelocity correlations. We obtain all asymptotical solutions for normal and superfluid energy spectra for limiting cases of small/big normal to superfluid density ratio and coupling. We discuss the applicability of our model to superfluid He II and to (3)HeB.

We employ the full FEN EP model of the hydrodynamics of a dilute polymer solution to derive a theoretical approach to drag reduction in wallbounded turbulence. We recapture the results of a recent simplified theory which derived the universal maximum drag reduction (MDR) asymptote, and complement that theory with a discussion of the crossover from the MDR to the Newtonian plug when the drag reduction saturates. The FENEP model gives rise to a rather complex theory due to the interaction of the velocity field with the polymeric conformation tensor, making analytic estimates quite taxing. To overcome this we develop the theory in a computerassisted manner, checking at each point the analytic estimates by direct numerical simulations (DNS) of viscoelastic turbulence in a channel.

Drag reduction by bubbles in stationary turbulent flows is sensitive to the compressibility of the bubbles. Without this dynamical effect the bubbles only renormalize the fluid density and viscosity, an effect that by itself can only lead to a small percentage of drag reduction. We show in this paper that the dynamics of bubbles and their effect on the compressibility of the mixture can lead to a much higher drag reduction.

The model offers an analytic description of the profiles of the mean velocity and the correlation functions of velocity fluctuations in the entire boundary region, from the viscous sublayer, through the buffer layer, and further into the loglaw turbulent region. In particular, the model predicts a very simple distribution of the turbulent kinetic energy in the loglaw region between the velocity components: the streamwise component contains a half of the total energy whereas the wallnormal and crossstream components contain a quarter each. In addition, the model predicts a very simple relation between the von Karman slope kappa and the turbulent velocity in the loglaw region v(+) (in wall units): v(+)=6 kappa. These predictions are in excellent agreement with direct numerical simulation data and with recent laboratory experiments.

(2005). Additive equivalence in turbulent drag reduction by flexible and rodlike polymers. Physical Review E. 72:(1)194502 (13 pp). Abstract
We address the "additive equivalence" discovered by Virk and coworkers: drag reduction affected by flexible and rigid rodlike polymers added to turbulent wallbounded flows is limited from above by a very similar maximum drag reduction (MDR) asymptote. Considering the equations of motion of rodlike polymers in wallbounded turbulent ensembles, we show that although the microscopic mechanism of attaining the MDR is very different, the macroscopic theory is isomorphic, rationalizing the interesting experimental observations.

(2005). Drag reduction by microbubbles in turbulent flows: The limit of minute bubbles. Physical Review Letters. 94:(17)174502 (4 pp). Abstract
Drag reduction by microbubbles is a promising engineering method for improving ship performance. A fundamental theory of the phenomenon is lacking, however, making actual design quite haphazard. We offer here a theory of drag reduction by microbubbles in the limit of very small bubbles, when the effect of the bubbles is mainly to normalize the density and the viscosity of the carrier fluid. The theory culminates with a prediction of the degree of drag reduction given the concentration profile of the bubbles. Comparisons with experiments are discussed and the road ahead is sketched.

(2005). Identification and calculation of the universal asymptote for drag reduction by polymers in wall bounded turbulence. Physical Review Letters. 95:(19)194502 (4 pp). Abstract
Drag reduction by polymers in wall turbulence is bounded from above by a universal maximal drag reduction (MDR) velocity profile that is a log law, estimated experimentally by Virk as V+(y(+))approximate to 11.7logy(+)17. Here V+(y) and y(+) are the mean streamwise velocity and the distance from the wall in "wall" units. In this Letter we propose that this MDR profile is an edge solution of the NavierStokes equations (with an effective viscosity profile) beyond which no turbulent solutions exist. This insight rationalizes the universality of the MDR and provides a maximum principle which allows an ab initio calculation of the parameters in this law without any viscoelastic experimental input.

(2005). Estimating von Karman's constant from homogeneous turbulence. Europhysics Letters. 72:(6)943949. Abstract
A celebrated universal aspect of wallbounded turbulent flows is the von Karman loglawofthewall, describing how the mean velocity in the streamwise direction depends on the distance from the wall. Although the loglaw is known for more than 75 years, the von Karman constant governing the slope of the loglaw was not determined theoretically. In this letter we show that the von Karman constant can be estimated from homogeneous turbulent data, i.e. without information from wallbounded flows.

(2005). Polymer stress tensor in turbulent shear flows. Physical Review E. 71:(1)016305 (11 pp). Abstract
The interaction of polymers with turbulent shear flows is examined. We focus on the structure of the elastic stress tensor, which is proportional to the polymer conformation tensor. Ale examine this object in turbulent flows of increasing complexity. First is isotropic turbulence, then anisotropic (but homogenous) shear turbulence, and finally wall bounded turbulence. The main result of this paper is that for all these flows the polymer stress tensor attains a universal structure in the limit of large Deborah number Demuch greater than 1. We present analytic results for the suppression of the coilstretch transition at large Deborah numbers. Above the transition the turbulent velocity fluctuations are strongly correlated with the polymer's elongation: there appear highquality "hydroelastic" waves in which turbulent kinetic energy turns into polymer potential energy and vice versa. These waves determine the trace of the elastic stress tensor but practically do not modify its universal structure. We demonstrate that the influence of the polymers on the balance of energy and momentum can be accurately described by an effective polymer viscosity that is proportional to the crossstream component of the elastic stress tensor. This component is smaller than the streamwise component by a factor proportional to De(2). Finally we tie our results to wall bounded turbulence and clarify some puzzling facts observed in the problem of drag reduction by polymers.

We discuss a simple analytical model of the turbulent boundary layer (TBL) over flat plane. The model offers an analytical description of the profiles of mean velocity and turbulent activity in the entire boundary region, from the viscous sublayer, through the buffer layer further into the loglaw turbulent region. In contrast to various existing interpolation formulas the model allows one to generalize the description of simple TBL of a Newtonian fluid for more complicated flows of turbulent suspensions laden with heavy particles, bubbles, longchain polymers, to include the gravity acceleration, etc.

(2004). Drag reduction by a linear viscosity profile. Physical Review E. 70:(5) Abstract
Drag reduction by polymers in turbulent flows raises an apparent contradiction: the stretching of the polymers must increase the viscosity, so why is the drag reduced? A recent theory proposed that drag reduction. in agreement with experiments. is consistent with the effective viscosity growing linearly with the distance from the wall. With this selfconsistent solution the reduction in the Reynolds stress overwhelms the increase in viscous drag. In this Rapid Communication we show, using direct numerical simulations. that a linear viscosity profile indeed reduces the drag in agreement with the theory and in close correspondence with direct simulations of the FENEP model at the same flow conditions.

(2004). Drag reduction by polymers in wall bounded turbulence. Physical Review Letters. 92:(24)244503 (4 pp). Abstract
We elucidate the mechanism of drag reduction by polymers in turbulent wallbounded flows: while momentum is produced at a fixed rate by the forcing, polymer stretching results in the suppression of momentum flux to the wall. On the basis of the equations of fluid mechanics we develop the phenomenology of the "maximum drag reduction asymptote" which is the maximum drag reduction attained by polymers. Based on Newtonian information only we demonstrate the existence of drag reduction, and with one experimental parameter we reach agreement with the experimental measurements.

(2004). Saturation of turbulent drag reduction in dilute polymer solutions. Europhysics Letters. 68:(6)825831. Abstract
Drag reduction by polymers in turbulent wallbounded flows exhibits universal and nonuniversal aspects. The universal maximal meanvelocity profile was explained in a recent theory. The saturation of this profile and the crossover back to the Newtonian plug are nonuniversal, depending on Reynolds number Re, concentration of polymer c(p) and the degree of polymerization Np. We explain the mechanism of saturation stemming from the finiteness of extensibility of the polymers, predict its dependence on c(p) and N in the limit of small c(p) and large Re, and present the excellent comparison of our predictions to experiments on drag reduction by DNA.

(2003). Strong universality in forced and decaying turbulence in a shell model. Physical Review E. 67:(6)066310 (9 pp). Abstract
The weak version of universality in turbulence refers to the independence of the scaling exponents of the nth order structure functions from the statistics of the forcing. The strong version includes universality of the coefficients of the structure functions in the isotropic sector, once normalized by the mean energy flux. We demonstrate that shell models of turbulence exhibit strong universality for both forced and decaying turbulence. The exponents and the normalized coefficients are time independent in decaying turbulence, forcing independent in forced turbulence, and equal for decaying and forced turbulence. We conjecture that this is also the case for NavierStokes turbulence.

(2003). Effect of particle inertia on turbulence in a suspension. Physical Review E. 67:(4)046314 (21 pp). Abstract
We propose a onefluid analytical model for a turbulently flowing dilute suspension, based on a modified NavierStokes equation with a kdependent effective density of suspension rho(eff)(k) and an additional damping term proportional to gamma(p)(k), representing the fluidparticle friction (described by Stokes law). The statistical description of turbulence within the model is simplified by a modification of the usual closure procedure based on the RichardsonKolmogorov picture of turbulence with a differential approximation for the energy transfer term. The resulting ordinary differential equation for the energy budget is solved analytically for various important limiting cases and numerically in the general case. In the inertial interval of scales, we describe analytically two competing effects: the energy suppression due to the fluidparticle friction and the energy enhancement during the cascade process due to decrease of the effective density of the smallscale motions. An additional suppression or enhancement of the energy density may occur in the viscous subrange, caused by the variation of the extent of the inertial interval due to the combined effect of the fluidparticle friction and the decrease of the kinematic viscosity of the suspensions. The analytical description of the complicated interplay of these effects supported by numerical calculations is presented. Our findings allow one to rationalize the qualitative picture of the isotropic homogeneous turbulence of dilute suspensions as observed in direct numerical simulations.

(2003). Stabilization of hydrodynamic flows by small viscosity variations. Physical Review E. 67:(2)026310 (11 pp). Abstract
Motivated by the large effect of turbulent drag reduction by minute concentrations of polymers, we study the effects of a weakly spacedependent viscosity on the stability of hydrodynamic flows. In a recent paper [Phys. Rev. Lett. 87, 174501, (2001)], we exposed the crucial role played by a localized region where the energy of fluctuations is produced by interactions with the mean flow (the "critical layer"). We showed that a layer of a weakly spacedependent viscosity placed near the critical layer can have a very large stabilizing effect on hydrodynamic fluctuations, retarding significantly the onset of turbulence. In this paper we extend these observations in two directions: first we show that the strong stabilization of the primary instability is also obtained when the viscosity profile is realistic (inferred from simulations of turbulent flows with a small concentration of polymers). Second, we analyze the secondary instability (around the timedependent primary instability) and find similar strong stabilization. Since the secondary instability develops around a timedependent solution and is three dimensional, this brings us closer to the turbulent case. We reiterate that the large effect is not due to a modified dissipation (as is assumed in some theories of drag reduction), but due to reduced energy intake from the mean flow to the fluctuations. We propose that similar physics act in turbulent drag reduction.

(2003). Scaling exponents in anisotropic hydrodynamic turbulence. Physical Review E. 67:(2)026312 (9 pp). Abstract
In anisotropic turbulence, the correlation functions are decomposed in the irreducible representations of the SO(3) symmetry group (with different "angular momenta" l). For different values of l, the secondorder correlation function is characterized by different scaling exponents zeta(2)(l). In this paper, we compute these scaling exponents in a closure approximation. By linearizing the closure equations in small anisotropy we set up a linear operator and find its zero modes in the inertial interval of scales. Thus the scaling exponents in each l sector follow from solvability condition, and are not determined by dimensional analysis. The main result of our calculation is that the scaling exponents zeta(2)(l) form a strictly increasing spectrum at least until l=6, guaranteeing that the effects of anisotropy decay as power laws when the scale of observation diminishes. The results of our calculations are compared to available experiments and simulations.

(2003). Drag reduction by polymers in turbulent channel flows: Energy redistribution between invariant empirical modes. Physical Review E. 67:(5) Abstract
We address the phenomenon of drag reduction by a dilute polymeric additive to turbulent flows, using direct numerical simulations (DNS) of the FENEP model of viscoelastic flows. It had been amply demonstrated that these model equations reproduce the phenomenon, but the results of DNS were not analyzed so far with the goal of interpreting the phenomenon. In order to construct a useful framework for the understanding of drag reduction we initiate in this paper an investigation of the most important modes that are sustained in the viscoelastic and Newtonian turbulent flows, respectively. The modes are obtained empirically using the KarhunenLoeve decomposition, allowing us to compare the most energetic modes in the viscoelastic and Newtonian flows. The main finding of the present study is that the spatial profile of the most energetic modes is hardly changed between the two flows. What changes is the energy associated with these modes, and their relative ordering in the decreasing order from the most energetic to the least. Modes that are highly excited in one flow can be strongly suppressed in the other, and vice versa. This dramatic energy redistribution is an important clue to the mechanism of drag reduction as is proposed in this paper. In particular, there is an enhancement of the energy containing modes in the viscoelastic flow compared to the Newtonian one; drag reduction is seen in the energy containing modes rather than the dissipative modes, as proposed in some previous theories.

(2003). Multizone shell model for turbulent wall bounded flows. Physical Review E. 68:(4)046308 (26 pp). Abstract
We suggested a multizone shell (MZS) model for wallbounded flows accounting for the space inhomogeneity in a piecewise approximation, in which the crosssectional area of the flow, S, is subdivided into j zones. The area of the first zone, responsible for the core of the flow, S(1)similar or equal toS/2, and the areas of the next j zones, Sj, decrease toward the wall like S(j)proportional to2(j). In each j zone the statistics of turbulence is assumed to be space homogeneous and is described by the set of shell velocities u(nj)(t) for turbulent fluctuations of the scale proportional to 2(n). The MZS model includes a set of complex variables Vj(t), j=1,2,...,infinity, describing the amplitudes of the nearwall coherent structures of the scale s(j)similar to2(j) and responsible for the mean velocity profile. The suggested MZS equations of motion for u(nj)(t) and Vj(t) preserve the actual conservation laws (energy, mechanical, and angular momenta), respect the existing symmetries (including Galilean and scale invariance), and account for the type of nonlinearity in the NavierStokes equation, dimensional reasoning, etc. The MZS model qualitatively describes important characteristics of the wallbounded turbulence, e.g., evolution of the mean velocity profile with increasing Reynolds number Re from the laminar profile toward the universal logarithmic profile near the flatplane boundary layer as Re>infinity.

A model is given that shows that the electronic properties of close packed organized organic layers, adsorbed on conductive substrate, may be very different from the properties of the single adsorbed molecule. The difference arises from a cooperative effect that results in electron transfer between the substrate and the layer. It is induced when molecules having dipole moment and low polarizability are organized so that their dipole moment is perpendicular to the surface. The thermodynamics of the problem is described. The model provides a possible rationalization to recent observed new experimental properties of adsorbed organized organic layers. (C) 2003 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.

(2002). QuasiGaussian statistics of hydrodynamic turbulence in 4/3+epsilon dimensions. Physical Review Letters. 89:(6)064501 (4 pp). Abstract
The statistics of twodimensional turbulence exhibit a riddle: the scaling exponents in the regime of inverse energy cascade agree with the K41 theory of turbulence far from equilibrium, but the probability distribution functions are close to Gaussianlike in equilibrium. The skewness Sequivalent toS(3)(R)/S2(3/2)(R) was measured as S(exp)approximate to0.03. This contradiction is lifted by understanding that twodimensional turbulence is not far from a situation with equipartition of enstrophy, which exists as true thermodynamic equilibrium with K41 exponents in space dimension of d=4/3. We evaluate the skewness S(d) for 4/3 less than or equal todless than or equal to2, showing that S(d)=0 at d=4/3, and that it remains as small as Sexp in two dimensions.

(2002). Clustering instability of the spatial distribution of inertial particles in turbulent flows. Physical Review E. 66:(3)036302 (16 pp). Abstract
A theory of clustering of inertial particles advected by a turbulent velocity field caused by an instability of their spatial distribution is suggested. The reason for the clustering instability is a combined effect of the particles inertia and a finite correlation time of the velocity field. The crucial parameter for the clustering instability is the size of the particles. The critical size is estimated for a strong clustering (with a finite fraction of particles in clusters) associated with the growth of the mean absolute value of the particles number density and for a weak clustering associated with the growth of the second and higher moments. A new concept of compressibility of the turbulent diffusion tensor caused by a finite correlation time of an incompressible velocity field is introduced. In this model of the velocity field, the field of Lagrangian trajectories is not divergence free. A mechanism of saturation of the clustering instability associated with the particles collisions in the clusters is suggested. Applications of the analyzed effects to the dynamics of droplets in the turbulent atmosphere are discussed. An estimated nonlinear level of the saturation of the droplets number density in clouds exceeds by the orders of magnitude their mean number density. The critical size of cloud droplets required for cluster formation is more than 20 mum.

(2002). Inverse cascade regime in shell models of twodimensional turbulence. Physical Review Letters. 89:(7)074501 (4 pp). Abstract
We consider shell models that display an inverse energy cascade similar to twodimensional turbulence (together with a direct cascade of an enstrophylike invariant). Previous attempts to construct such models ended negatively, stating that shell models give rise to a "quasiequilibrium" situation with equipartition of the energy among the shells. We show analytically that the quasiequilibrium state predicts its own disappearance upon changing the model parameters in favor of the establishment of an inverse cascade regime with Kolmogorov scaling. The latter regime is found where predicted, offering a useful model to study inverse cascades.

(2002). Quasisolitons and asymptotic multiscaling in shell models of turbulence. Physical Review E. 65:(2)026309 (11 pp). Abstract
A variation principle is suggested to find selfsimilar solitary solutions (referred to as solitons) of shell model of turbulence. For the Sabra shell model the shape of the solitons is approximated by rational trial functions with relative accuracy of O(10(3)). It is found how the soliton shape, propagation time t(n) (from a shell n to shells with n > infinity), and the dynamical exponent z(0) (which governs the time resealing of the solitons in different shells) depend on parameters of the model. For a finite interval of z the author discovered quasisolitons which approximate with high accuracy corresponding selfsimilar equations for an interval of times from  infinity to some time in the vicinity of the peak maximum or even after it. The conjecture is that file trajectories in the vicinity of the quasisolitons (with continuous spectra of z) provide an essential contribution to the multiscaling statistics of highorder correlation functions, referred to in the paper as an asymptotic multiscaling. This contribution may be even more important than that of the trajectories in the vicinity of the exact soliton with a fixed value z(0). Moreover there are no solitons in some regions of the parameters where quasisolitons provide a dominant contribution to the asymptotic multiscaling.

(2002). Birth of anomalous scaling in a model of hydrodynamic turbulence with a tunable parameter. FractalsComplex Geometry Patterns And Scaling In Nature And Society. 10:(3)291296. Abstract
We introduce a model of hydrodynamic turbulence with a tunable parameter epsilon, which represents the ratio between deterministic and random components in the coupling between N identical copies of the turbulent field. To compute the anomalous scaling exponents zeta(n) (of the nth order structure functions) for chosen values of epsilon, we consider a systematic closure procedure for the hierarchy of equations for the norder correlation functions, in the limit N >infinity. The parameter epsilon regularizes the closure procedure, in the sense that discarded terms are of higher order in epsilon compared to those retained. It turns out that after the terms of O(1), the first nonzero terms are O(epsilon(4)). Within this epsiloncontrolled procedure, we have a finite and closed set of scaleinvariant equations for the 2nd and 3rd order statistical objects of the theory. This set of equations retains all terms of O(1) and O(epsilon(4)) and neglects terms of O(epsilon(6)). On this basis, we expect anomalous corrections deltazeta(n) in the scaling exponents zeta(n) to increase with epsilon(n). This expectation is confirmed by extensive numerical simulations using up to 25 copies and 28 shells for various values of epsilon(n). The simulations demonstrate that in the limit N > infinity, the scaling is normal for epsilon <ε(cr) with ε(cr) &AP; 0.6. We observed the birth of anomalous scaling at ε = ε(cr) with δζ(n) &PROP; ε(4)  ε(4)(cr) according to our expectation.

(2001). Outliers, extreme events, and multiscaling. Physical Review E. 63:(5)056118 (10 pp). Abstract
Extreme events have an important role which is sometimes catastrophic in a variety of natural phenomena, including climate, earthquakes, and turbulence, as well as in manmade environments such as financial markets. Statistical analysis and predictions in such systems are complicated by the fact that on the one hand extreme events may appear as "outliers" whose statistical properties do not seem to conform with the bulk of the data, and on the other hand they dominate the tails of the probability distributions and the scaling of high moments, leading to "abnormal" or "multiscaling." We employ a shell model of turbulence to show that it is very useful to examine in detail the dynamics of onset and demise of extreme events. Doing so may reveal dynamical scaling properties of the extreme events that are characteristic to them, and not shared by the bulk of the fluctuations. As the extreme events dominate the tails of the distribution functions, knowledge of their dynamical scaling properties can be turned into a prediction of the functional form of the tails. We show that from the analysis of relatively shorttime horizons (in which the extreme events appear as outliers) we can predict the tails of the probability distribution functions, in agreement with data collected in very much longer time horizons. The conclusion is that events that may appear unpredictable on relatively short time horizons are actually a consistent part of a multiscaling statistics on longer time horizons.

(2001). Retardation of the onset of turbulence by minor viscosity contrasts. Physical Review Letters. 87:(17)174501 (4 pp). Abstract
Motivated by turbulent drag reduction by minute concentrations of polymers we study the effects of minor viscosity contrasts on the stability of hydrodynamic flows. The key player is a localized region where fluctuations are produced by interactions with the mean flow (the "critical layer"). We show that a layer of weakly spacedependent viscosity placed near the critical layer has a very large stabilizing effect on hydrodynamic fluctuations, retarding significantly the onset of turbulence. The effect is not due to a modified dissipation (as is assumed in theories of drag reduction) but is due to reduced energy intake from the mean flow to the fluctuations. Similar physics may act in turbulent drag reduction.

We present a short review of the work conducted by our group on the subject of anomalous scaling in anisotropic turbulence. The basic idea that unifies all the applications discussed here is that the equations of motion for correlation functions are always linear and invariant to rotations, and therefore the solutions foliate into sectors of the symmetry group of all rotations (SO(3)). We have considered models of passive scalar and passive vector advections by a rapidly changing turbulent velocity field (Kraichnantype models) for which we find a discrete spectrum of universal anomalous exponents, with a different exponent characterizing the scaling behavior in every sector. Generically the correlation functions and structure functions appear as sums over all these contributions, with nonuniversal amplitudes which are determined by the anisotropic boundary conditions. In addition we considered NavierStokes turbulence by analyzing simulations and experiments, and reached some interesting conclusions regarding the scaling exponents in the anisotropic sectors. The theory presented here clarifies questions like the restoration of local isotropy upon decreasing scales. We explain when the local isotropy is fully restored and when the lingering effects of the anisotropic forcing appear for arbitrarily small scales. (C) 2000 Elsevier Science B.V.

(2000). Anomalous scaling in the anisotropic sectors of the Kraichnan model of passive scaler advection. Physical Review E. 62:(4)49044919. Abstract
Kraichnan's model of passive scalar advection in which the driving (Gaussian) velocity field has fast temporal decorrelation is studied as a case model for understanding the anomalous scaling behavior in the anisotropic sectors of turbulent fields. We show here that the solutions of the Kraichnan equation for the norder correlation functions foliate into sectors that are classified by the irreducible representations of the SO(d) symmetry group. We find a discrete spectrum of universal anomalous exponents, with a different exponent characterizing the scaling behavior in every sector. Generically the correlation functions and structure functions appear as sums over all these contributions, with nonuniversal amplitudes that are determined by the anisotropic boundary conditions. The isotropic sector is always characterized by the smallest exponent, and therefore for sufficiently small scales local isotropy is always restored. The calculation of the anomalous exponents is done in two complementary ways. In the first they are obtained from the analysis of the correlation functions of gradient fields. The theory of these functions involves the control of logarithmic divergences that translate into anomalous scaling with the ratio of the inner and the outer scales appearing in the Anal result. In the second method we compute the exponents from the zero modes of the Kraichnan equation for the correlation functions of the scaler field itself. In this case the renormalization scale is the outer scale. The two approaches lead to the same scaling exponents for the same statistical objects, illuminating the relative role of the outer and inner scales as renormalization scales. In addition we derive exact fusion rules, which govern the small scale asymptotics of the correlation functions in all the sectors of the symmetry group and in all dimensions.

(2000). Scaling structure of the velocity statistics in atmospheric boundary layers. Physical Review E. 61:(1)407421. Abstract
The statistical objects characterizing turbulence in real turbulent flows differ from those of the ideal homogeneous isotropic model. They contain contributions from various two and threedimensional aspects, and from the superposition of inhomogeneous and anisotropic contributions. We employ the recently introduced decomposition of statistical tensor objects into irreducible representations of the SO(3) symmetry group (characterized by j and m indices, where j = 0... infinity, j less than or equal to m less than or equal to j) to disentangle some of these contributions, separating the universal and the asymptotic from the specific aspects of the how. The different j contributions transform differently under rotations, and so form a complete basis in which to represent the tensor objects under study. The experimental data are recorded with hotwire probes placed at various heights in the atmospheric surface layer. Time series data from single probes and from pairs of probes are analyzed to compute the amplitudes and exponents of different contributions to the second order statistical objects characterized by j = 0, 1, and 2. The analysis shows the need to make a careful distinction between longlived quasitwodimensional turbulent motions (close to the ground) and relatively shortlived threedimensional motions. We demonstrate that the leading scaling exponents in the three leading sectors (j = 0, 1, and 2) appear to be different but universal, independent of the positions of the probe, the tensorial component considered, and the large scale properties. The measured values of the scaling exponent are xi 2((j = 0)) = 0.68+/0.01, xi(2)((j = 1)) = 1.0 +/0.15, and xi(2)((j = 2)) = 1.38+/0.10. We present theoretical arguments for the values of these exponents using the Clebsch representation of the Euler equations; neglecting anomalous corrections, the values obtained are 2/3, 1, and 4/3, respectively. Some enigmas and questions for the future are sketched. PAC

(2000). Anomalous scaling in a model of hydrodynamic turbulence with a small parameter. Europhysics Letters. 50:(4)473479. Abstract
The major difficulty in developing theories for anomalous scaling in hydrodynamic turbulence is the lack of a small parameter. In this letter we introduce a shell model of turbulence that exhibits anomalous scaling with a tunable parameter epsilon, 0 less than or equal to epsilon less than or equal to 1, representing the ratio between deterministic and random components in the coupling between N identical copies of the turbulent field. Our numerical experiments give strong evidence that in the limit N > infinity anomalous scaling sets in proportional to epsilon(4) This result shows consistency with the nonperturbative closure proposed by the authors in Phys. Fluids, 12 (2000) 803. In this procedure closed equations of motion for the loworder correlation and response functions are obtained, keeping terms proportional to epsilon(0) and epsilon(4), discarding terms of orders epsilon(6) and higher. Moreover we give strong evidences that the birth of anomalous scaling appears at a finite critical epsilon, being epsilon(c) approximate to 0.6.

(2000). Analytic calculation of the anomalous exponents in turbulence: Using the fusion rules to flush out a small parameter. Physical Review E. 62:(6)80378057. Abstract
The main difficulty of statistical theories of fluid turbulence is the lack of an obvious small parameter. In this paper we show that the formerly established fusion rules can be employed to develop a theory in which Kolmogorov's statistics of 1941 (K41) acts as the zero order, or background statistics, and the anomalous corrections to the K41 scaling exponents xi (n) of the nthorder structure functions can be computed analytically. The crux of the method consists of renormalizing a fourpoint interaction amplitude on the basis of the fusion rules. This amplitude includes a small dimensionless parameter, which is shown to be of the order of the anomaly of xi (2), delta (2)=xi (2)  2/3 approximate to0.03 Higherorder interaction amplitudes an shown to be even smaller. The corrections to K41 to 0(delta (2)) result from standard logarithmically divergent ladder diagrams in which the fourpoint interaction acts as a "rung." The theory allows a calculation of the anomalous exponents xi (n) in powers of the small parameter delta (2). The n dependence of the scaling exponents xi (n) stems from pure combinatorics of the ladder diagrams. In this paper we calculate the exponents xi (n) up to 0(delta (3)(2)). Previously derived bridge relations allow a calculation of the anomalous exponents of correlations of the dissipation field and of dynamical correlations in terms of the same parameter delta (2). The actual evaluation of the small parameter delta (2) from first principles requires additional developments that are outside the scope of this paper.

We found universal anizopropic spectra of acoustic turbulence with the linear dispersion law omega(k)=ck within the framework of generalized kinetic equation which takes into account the finite time of threewave interactions. This anisotropic spectra can assume both scaleinvariant and nonscaleinvariant form. The implications for the evolution of the acoustic turbulence with nonisotropic pumping are discussed. The main result of the article is that the spectra of acoustic turbulence tend to become more isotropic.

(2000). Anomalous scaling from controlled closure in a shell model of turbulence. Physics of Fluids. 12:(4)803821. Abstract
We present a model of hydrodynamic turbulence for which the program of computing the scaling exponents from first principles can be developed in a controlled fashion. The model consists of N suitably coupled copies of the "Sabra" shell model of turbulence. The couplings are chosen to include two components: random and deterministic, with a relative importance that is characterized by a parameter called epsilon. It is demonstrated, using numerical simulations of up to 25 copies and 28 shells that in the N >infinity limit but for 0 infinity limit the parameter epsilon can be used to regularize the closure procedure. The main result of this paper is a finite and closed set of scaleinvariant equations for the 2nd and 3rd order statistical objects of the theory. This set of equations takes into account terms up to order epsilon(4) and neglects terms of order epsilon(6). Preliminary analysis of this set of equations indicates a K41 normal scaling at epsilon=0, with a birth of anomalous exponents at larger values of epsilon, in agreement with the numerical simulations.

(1999). Hamiltonian structure of the Sabra shell model of turbulence: Exact calculation of an anomalous scaling exponent. Europhysics Letters. 46:(5)609612. Abstract
We show that the Sabra shell model of turbulence, which was introduced recently, displays a Hamiltonian structure for given Values of the parameters. The requirement of scale independence of the flux of this Hamiltonian allows us to compute exactly a oneparameter family of anomalous scaling exponents associated with 4thorder correlation functions.

(1999). Correlation functions in isotropic and anisotropic turbulence: The role of the symmetry group. Physical Review E. 59:(6)67536765. Abstract
The theory of fury developed turbulence is usually considered in an idealized homogeneous and isotropic state. Real turbulent flows exhibit the effects of anisotropic forcing. The analysis of correlation functions and structure functions in isotropic and anisotropic situations is facilitated and made rational when performed in terms of the irreduciblerepresentations of the relevant symmetry group which is the group of all rotations SO(3). In this paper we first consider the needed general theory, and explain why we expect different (universal) scaling exponents in the different sectors of the symmetry group. We exemplify the theory context of isotropic turbulence (for third order tensorial structure functions) and in weakly anisotropic turbulence (for the second order structure function). The utility of the resulting expressions for the analysis of experimental data is demonstrated in the context of high Reynolds number measurements of turbulence in the atmosphere.

(1999). Temporal surrogates of spatial turbulent statistics: The Taylor hypothesis revisited. Physical Review E. 60:(4)41754184. Abstract
The Taylor hypothesis, which allows surrogating spatial measurements requiring many experimental probes : by rime series from one or two probes, is examined on the basis of a simple analytic model of turbulent statistics. The main points are as follows: (i) The Taylor hypothesis introduces systematic errors in the evaluation of scaling exponents. (ii) When the mean wind (V) over bar(0) is not infinitely larger than the rootmeansquare longitudinal turbulent fluctuations upsilon(T), the effective Taylor advection velocity Vad Should take the latter into account. (iii) When two or more probes are employed the application of the Taylor hypothesis and the optimal choice of the effective advecting wind Vad need extra care. We present practical considerations for minimizing the errors incurred in experiments using one or two probes. (iv) Analysis of the Taylor hypothesis when different probes experience different mean winds is offered. [S1063651X(99)140108].

(1999). Continued fraction representation of temporal multiscaling in turbulence. Physical Review E. 60:(6)66566662. Abstract
It was shown recently that the anomalous scaling of simultaneous correlation functions in turbulence is intimately related to the breaking of temporal scale invariance, which is equivalent to the appearance of infinitely many times scales in the timedependence of timecorrelation functions. In this paper we derive a continued fraction representation of turbulent time correlation functions which is exact and in which the multiplicity of time scales is explicit. We demonstrate that this form yields precisely the same scaling laws for time derivatives and time integrals as the "multifractal" representation that was used before. Truncating the continued fraction representation yields the ''best'' estimates of time correlation functions if the given information is limited to the scaling exponents of the simultaneous correlation functions up to a certain, finite order. It is worth noting that the derivation of a continued fraction representation obtained here for a time evolution operator which is not Hermitian or antiHermitian may be of independent interest.

(1998). Improved shell model of turbulence. Physical Review E. 58:(2)18111822. Abstract
We introduce a shell model of turbulence that exhibits improved properties in comparison to the standard (and very popular) Gledzer, Ohkitani, and Yamada (GOY) model. The nonlinear coupling is chosen to minimize correlations between different shells. In particular, the secondorder correlation function is diagonal in the shell index and the thirdorder correlation exists only between three consecutive shells. Spurious oscillations in the scaling regime, which are an annoying feature of the GOY model, are eliminated by our choice of nonlinear coupling. We demonstrate that the model exhibits multiscaling similar to the GOY model. The scaling exponents are shown to be independent of the viscous mechanism as is expected for NavierStokes turbulence and other shell models. These properties of the model make it optimal for further attempts to achieve understanding of multiscaling in nonlinear dynamics.

(1998). Dissipative scaling functions in NavierStokes turbulence: Experimental tests. Europhysics Letters. 43:(3)277283. Abstract
A recent theoretical development in the understanding of the smallscale structure of NavierStokes turbulence has been the proposition that the scales eta(n) (R) that separate inertial from viscous behavior of manypoint correlation functions depend on the order n and on the typical separations R of points in the correlation. This is of fundamental significance in itself but it also has implications for the scaling behaviour of various correlation functions. This dependence has never been observed directly in laboratory experiments. In order to observe it, turbulence data which both display a welldeveloped scaling range with clean scaling behaviour and are wellresolved in the small scales to well within the viscous range is required. The data of the experiments performed in the laboratory of P. Tabeling of NavierStokes turbulence in a helium cell with counterrotating disks approach these criteria, and provide supporting evidence for the existence of the predicted scaling of the viscous scale.

(1998). Extraction of anisotropic contributions in turbulent flows. Physical Review Letters. 81:(24)53305333. Abstract
We analyze turbulent velocity signals in the atmospheric surface layer, obtained by pairs of probes separated by inertialrange distances parallel to the ground and (nominally) orthogonal to the mean wind. The Taylor microscale Reynolds number ranges up to 20000. Choosing a suitable coordinate system with respect to the mean wind, we derive theoretical forms for second order structure functions and fit them to experimental data. The effect of flow anisotropy is small for the longitudinal component but significant for the transverse component. The data provide an estimate for a universal exponent from among a hierarchy that governs the decay of flow anisotropy with the scale size.


(1998). Computing the scaling exponents in fluid turbulence from first principles: Demonstration of multiscaling. Journal of Statistical Physics. 93:(4Mar)797832. Abstract
We develop a consistent closure procedure fbr the calculation of the scaling exponents zeta(n) of the nthorder correlation functions in fully developed hydrodynamic turbulence, starting from first principles. The closure procedure is constructed to respect the fundamental rescaling symmetry of the Euler equation. The starting point of the procedure is an infinite hierarchy of coupled equations that are obeyed identically with respect to scaling for any set of scaling exponents zeta(n). This hierarchy was discussed in detail in a recent publication by V. S. L'vov and I. Procaccia. The scaling exponents in this set of equations cannot be found from power counting. In this paper we present in detail the lowest nontrivial closure of this infinite set of equations, and prove that this closure leads to the determination of the scaling exponents from solvability conditions. The equations under consideration after this closure are nonlinear integrodifferential equations, reflecting the nonlinearity of the original NavierStokes equations. Nevertheless they have a very special structure such that the determination of the scaling exponents requires a procedure that is very similar to the solution of linear homogeneous equations, in which amplitudes are determined by fitting to the boundary conditions in the space of scales. The renormalization scale that is necessary for any anomalous scaling appears at this point. The Holder inequalities on the scaling exponents select the renormalization scale as the outer scale of turbulence L. We demonstrate that the solvability condition of our equations leads to nonKolmogorov values of the scaling exponents zeta(n). Finally, we show that this solutions is a first approximation in a systematic series of improving approximations for the calculation of the anomalous exponents in turbulence.

In this short paper we describe the essential ideas behind a new consistent closure procedure for the calculation of the scaling exponents zeta(n) of the nth order correlation functions in fully developed hydrodynamic turbulence, starting from first principles. The closure procedure is constructed to respect the fundamental rescaling symmetry of the Euler equation, The starting point of the procedure is an infinite hierarchy of coupled equations that are obeyed identically with respect to scaling for any set of scaling exponents zeta(n). This hierarchy was discussed in detail in a recent publication [V.S. L'vov and I. Procaccia, Physica A (1998), in press, chaodyn/9707015]. The scaling exponents in this set of equations cannot be found from power counting. In this short paper we discuss in detail low order nontrivial closures of this infinite set of equations, and prove that these closures lead to the determination of the scaling exponents from solvability conditions. The equations under consideration after this closure are nonlinear integrodifferential equations, reflecting the nonlinearity of the original NavierStokes equations. Nevertheless, they have a very special structure such that the determination of the scaling exponents requires a procedure that is very similar to the solution of linens homogeneous equations, in which amplitudes are determined by fitting to the boundary conditions in the space of scales.

(1998). Universal scaling exponents in shell models of turbulence: Viscous effects are finitesized corrections to scaling. Physical Review Letters. 81:802805. Abstract
In a series of recent works it was proposed that shell models of turbulence exhibit inertial range scaling exponents that depend on the nature of the dissipative mechanism. If true, and if one could imply a similar phenomenon to NavierStokes turbulence, this finding would cast strong doubts on the universality of scaling in turbulence. In this Letter we propose that these "nonuniversalities" are just corrections to scaling that disappear when the Reynolds number goes to infinity. [S00319007(98)066939].

(1998). Computing the scaling exponents in fluid turbulence from first principles: the formal setup. Physica A. 257:(4Jan)165196. Abstract
We propose a scheme for the calculation from the NavierStokes equations of the scaling exponents in of the nth order correlation functions in fully developed hydrodynamic turbulence. The scheme is nonperturbative and constructed to respect the fundamental rescaling symmetry of the Euler equation. It constitutes an infinite hierarchy of coupled equations that are obeyed identically with respect to scaling for any set of scaling exponents zeta(n). As a consequence the scaling exponents are determined by solvability conditions and not from power counting. It is argued that in order to achieve such a formulation one must recognize that the manypoint spacetime correlation functions are not scale invariant in their time arguments, The assumption of full scale invariance leads unavoidably to Kolmogorov exponents. It is argued that the determination of all the scaling exponents in requires equations for infinitely many renormalized objects. One can however proceed in controlled successive approximations by successive truncations of the infinite hierarchy of equations. Clues as to how to truncate without reintroducing power counting can be obtained from renormalized perturbation theory. To this aim we show that the fully resummed perturbation theory is equivalent in its contents to the exact hierarchy of equations obeyed by the nth order correlation functions and Green's function. In light of this important result we can safely use finite resummations to construct successive closures of the infinite hierarchy of equations. This paper presents the conceptual and technical details of the scheme. The analysis of the highorder closure procedures which do not destroy the rescaling symmetry and the actual calculations for truncated models will be presented in a forthcoming paper in collaboration with V. Belinicher. (C) 1998 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.

We present the first experimental tests of the recently derived fusion rules for NavierStokes turbulence. The fusion rules address the asymptotic properties of manypoint correlation functions as some of the coordinates coalesce. and form an important ingredient of the nonperturbative statistical theory of turbulence. Here we test the fusion rules when the spatial separations lie within the inertial range, and find good agreement between experiment and theory. For inertialrange separations and for velocity increments which are not too large, a simple linear relation appears to exist for the Laplacian of the velocity fluctuation conditioned on velocity increments.

These results are compared with the scaling exponents predicted for this model by Further, we test the recently proposed fusion rules which govern the scaling properties of multipoint correlations, and present results on the linearity of the conditional statistics of the Laplacian operator on the scalar field.

(1997). Invariants for correlations of velocity differences in turbulent fields. Physical Review Letters. 79:(11)20502052. Abstract
The phenomenology of the, scaling behavior of higher order structure functions of velocity differences across a scale R in turbulence should be built around the irreducible representations of the rotation symmetry group. Every irreducible representation is associated with a scalar function of R which may exhibit different scaling exponents. The common practice of using moments of longitudinal and transverse fluctuations mixes different scalar functions and therefore may mix different scaling exponents. It is shown explicitly how to extract pure scaling exponents for correlation functions of arbitrary orders.

(1997). Temporal multiscaling in hydrodynamic turbulence. Physical Review E. 55:(6)70307035. Abstract
On the basis of the NavierStokes equations, we develop the high Reynolds number statistical theory of differenttime, manypoint spatial correlation functions of velocity differences, We find that their time dependence is not scale invariant: norder correlation functions exhibit infinitely many distinct decorrelation times that are characterized by anomalous dynamical scaling exponents. We derive exact scaling relations that bridge all these dynamical exponents to the static anomalous exponents zeta(q) of the standard structure functions. We propose a representation of the time dependence using the Legendretransform formalism of multifractals that automatically reproduces all the newly found bridge relationships.

The anomalous scaling behavior of the nth order correlation functions Fn of the Kraichnan model of turbulent passive scalar advection is believed to be dominated by the homogeneous solutions (zero modes) of the Kraichnan equation (B) over cap(n)F(n)=0. Previous analysis found zero modes in perturbation theory with respect to a small parameter. We present a computerassisted analysis of the simplest nontrivial case of n = 3: we demonstrate nonperturbatively the existence of anomalous scaling, and compare the results with the perturbative predictions.

(1997). Perturbative and nonperturbative analysis of the thirdorder zero modes in the Kraichnan model for turbulent advection. Physical Review E. 56:(1)406416. Abstract
The anomalous scaling behavior of the nthorder correlation functions Fn of the Kraichnan model of turbulent passive scalar advection is believed to be dominated by the homogeneous solutions (zero modes) of the Kraichnan equation beta(n)F(n)=0. In this paper we present an extensive analysis of the simplest (nontrivial) case of n=3 in the isotropic sector. The main parameter of the model, denoted as zeta(h), characterizes the eddy diffusivity and can take values in the interval 0 less than or equal to zeta(h) less than or equal to 2. After choosing appropriate variables we can present nonperturbative numerical calculations of the zero modes in a projective two dimensional circle. In this presentation it is also very easy to perform perturbative calculations of the scaling exponent zeta(3) of the zero modes in the limit zeta(h)>0, and we display quantitative agreement with the nonperturbative calculations in this limit. Another interesting limit is zeta(h)>2. This second limit is singular, and calls for a study of a boundary layer using techniques of singular perturbation theory. Our analysis of this limit shows that the scaling exponent zeta(3) vanishes as root zeta(2)/\1n zeta(2)\, where zeta(2) is the scaling exponent of the secondorder correlation function. In this limit as well, perturbative calculations are consistent with the nonperturbative calculations.

(1996). Fusion rules and conditional statistics in turbulent advection. Physical Review E. 54:(5)R4520R4523. Abstract
Fusion rules in turbulence address the asymptotic properties of manypoint correlation functions when some of the coordinates are very close to each other. Here we put to the experimental test some nontrivial consequences of thr fusion rules for scalar correlations in turbulence. To this aim we examine passive turbulent advection as veil as convective turbulence. Adding one assumption to the fusion rules, one obtains a prediction for universal conditional statistics of gradient fields. We examine the conditional average of the scalar dissipation field [del(2)T(r)\T(r + R)  T(r)] for R in the inertial range and find that it is linear in T(r + R) T(r) with a fully determined proportionality constant. The implications of these findings for the general scaling theory of scalar turbulence are discussed.

(1996). Extended selfsimilarity in turbulent systems: An analytically soluble example. Physical Review Letters. 76:(11)18281831. Abstract
In turbulent flows the nth order structure functions Sn(R) scale like R(zeta n) when R is in the ''inertial range.'' Extended selfsimilarity refers to the substantial increase in the range of power law behavior of the Sn(R) when they are plotted as a function of S2(R) or S3(R). Here we demonstrate this phenomenon analytically in the context of the ''multiscaling'' turbulent advection of a passive scalar. This model gives rise to a series of differential equations for the structure functions Sn(R) which can be solved and shown to exhibit extended selfsimilarity. The phenomenon is understood by comparing the equations for Sn(R) to those for Sn(S2).

Fusion rules in turbulence specify the analytic structure of manypoint correlation functisons of the turbulent field when a group of coordinates coalesce. We show that the existence of universal flux equilibrium in fully developed turbulent systems combined with a direct cascade induces universal fusion rules. In certain examples these fusion rules suffice to compute the multiscaling exponents exactly, and in other examples they give rise to an infinite number of scaling relations that constrain enormously the structure of the allowed theory.

Correlation functions of nonscalar fields in isotropic hydrodynamic turbulence are characterized by a set of universal exponents.

(1996). Towards a nonperturbative theory of hydrodynamic turbulence: Fusion rules, exact bridge relations, and anomalous viscous scaling functions. Physical Review E. 54:(6)62686284. Abstract
In this paper we address nonperturbative aspects of the analytic theory of hydrodynamic turbulence. Of paramount importance for this theory are the ''fusion rules'' that describe the asymptotic properties of npoint correlation functions when some of the coordinates tend toward one other. We first derive here, on the basis of two fundamental assumptions, a set of fusion rules for correlations of velocity differences when all the separations are in the inertial interval. Using this set of fusion rules we consider the standard hierarchy of equations relating the nthorder correlations (originating from the viscous term in the NavierStokes equations) to (n+1)th order (originating from the nonlinear term) and demonstrate that for fully unfused correlations the viscous term is negligible. Consequently the hierarchic chain of equations is decoupled in the sense that the correlations of (n+1)th order satisfy a homogeneous equation that may exhibit anomalous scaling solutions. Using the same hierarchy of equations when some separations go to zero we derive, on the basis of the NavierStokes equations, a second set of fusion rules for correlations with differences in the viscous range. The latter includes gradient fields. We demonstrate that every nthorder correlation function of velocity differences Fn(R(1),R(2),...) exhibits its own crossover length eta(n), to dissipative behavior as a function of, say, R(1). This length depends on n and on the remaining separations R(2),R(3),.... When all these separations are of the same order R this length scales as eta(n)(R)similar to eta(R/L)(x)n with X(n)=(zeta(n)zeta(n+1)+zeta(3)zeta(2))/(2zeta(2)), with zeta(n) being the scaling exponent of the nthorder structure function. We derive a class of exact scaling relations bridging the exponents of correlations of gradient fields to the exponents zeta(n) of the nthorder structure functions. One of these relations is the well known ''bridge relation'' for the scaling exponent o

(1996). Viscous lengths in hydrodynamic turbulence are anomalous scaling functions. Physical Review Letters. 77:(17)35413544. Abstract
It is shown that the idea that scaling behavior in turbulence is limited by one outer length L and one inner length eta is untenable. Every nth order correlation function of velocity differences Fn(R(1), R(2),...) exhibits its own crossover length eta(n) to dissipative behavior as a function of R(1). This depends on n and on the remaining separations R(2)/R(3),.... One result is that when separations are of the same order R, this scales as eta(n)(R)similar to eta(R/L)(xn) with x(n)=(zeta(n)zeta(n+1)+zeta(3)zeta(2))/(2zeta(2)), zeta(n) the scaling exponent of the nth order structure function. We derive an infinite set of scaling relations that bridge the exponents of correlations of gradient fields to the exponents zeta(n), including the ''bridge relation'' for the scaling exponent of dissipation fluctuations mu=2zeta(6).

(1996). Conditional statistics in scalar turbulence: Theory versus experiment. Physical Review E. 54:(6)63646371. Abstract
We consider turbulent advection of a scalar field T(r), passive or active, and focus on the statistics of gradient fields conditioned on scalar differences Delta T(R) across a scale R. In particular we focus on two conditional averages [del(2)T\del T(R)] and [\del T\(2)\Delta T(R)]. We find exact relations between these averages, and with the help of the fusion rules we propose a general representation far these objects in terms of the probability density function P(Delta T,R) of Delta T(R). These results offer a way to analyze experimental data that is presented in this paper. The main question that we ask is whether the conditional average [del(2)T\Delta T(R)] is linear in Delta T. We show that there exists a dimensionless parameter which governs the deviation from linearity. The data analysis indicates that this parameter is very small for passive scalar advection, and is generally a decreasing function of the Rayleigh number for the convection data.

(1996). Anomalous scaling in a model of passive scalar advection: Exact results. Physical Review E. 53:(4)35183535. Abstract
Kraichnan's model of passive scalar advection in which the driving velocity field has fast temporal decorrelation is studied as a case model for understanding the appearance of anomalous scaling in turbulent systems. We demonstrate how the techniques of renormalized perturbation theory lead (after exact resummations) to equations for the statistical quantities that also reveal nonperturbative effects. It is shown that ultraviolet divergences in the diagrammatic expansion translate into anomalous scaling with the inner length acting as the renormalization scale. In this paper, we compute analytically the infinite set of anomalous exponents that stem from the ultraviolet divergences. Notwithstanding these computations, nonperturbative effects furnish a possibility of anomalous scaling based on the outer renormalization scale. The mechanism for this intricate behavior is examined and explained in detail. We show that in the language of L'vov, Procaccia, and Fairhall [Phys. Rev. E 50, 4684 (1994)], the problem is ''critical,'' i.e., the anomalous exponent of the scalar primary field Delta = Delta(c). This is precisely the condition that allows for anomalous scaling in the structure functions as well, and we prove that this anomaly must be based on the outer renormalization scale. Finally, we derive the scaling laws that were proposed by Kraichnan for this problem and show that his scaling exponents are consistent with our theory.

(1996). Scaling behavior in turbulence is doubly anomalous. Physical Review Letters. 76:(21)39633966. Abstract
It is shown that the description of anomalous scaling in turbulent systems requires the simultaneous use of two normalization scales. This phenomenon stems from the existence of two independent (infinite) sets of anomalous scaling exponents that appear in leading order, one set due to infrared anomalies and the other due to ultraviolet anomalies. To expose this clearly we introduce here a set of local fields whose correlation functions depend simultaneously on the two sets of exponents. Thus the Kolmogorov picture of ''inertial range'' scaling is shown to fail because of anomalies that are sensitive to the two ends of this range.

(1996). Exact resummations in the theory of hydrodynamic turbulence .3. Scenarios for anomalous scaling and intermittency. Physical Review E. 53:(4)34683490. Abstract
Elements of the analytic structure of anomalous scaling and intermittency in fully developed hydrodynamic turbulence are described. We focus here on the structure functions of velocity differences that satisfy inertial range scaling laws Sn(R)similar to R(zeta n), and the correlation of energy dissipation Kepsilon epsilon(R)similar to R(mu). The goal is to understand from first principles what is the mechanism that is responsible for changing the exponents zeta(n) and mu from their classical Kolmogorov values. In paper II of this series [V. S. L'vov and I. Procaccia, Phys. Rev. E 52, 3858 (1995)] it was shown that the existence of an ultraviolet scale (the dissipation scale eta) is associated with a spectrum of anomalous exponents that characterize the ultraviolet divergences of correlations of gradient fields. The leading scaling exponent in this family was denoted Delta. The exact resummation of ladder diagrams resulted in a ''bridging relation,'' which determined Delta in terms of zeta(2): Delta = 2zeta(2). In this paper we continue our analysis and show that nonperturbative effects may introduce multiscaling (i.e., zeta(n) not linear in n) with the renormalization scale being the infrared outer scale of turbulence L. It is shown that deviations from the classical Kolmogorov 1941 theory scaling of Sn(R) (zeta(n) not equal n/3) must appear if the correlation of dissipation is mixing (i.e., mu>0). We suggest possible scenarios for multiscaling, and discuss the implication of these scenarios on the values of the scaling exponents zeta(n) and their ''bridge'' with mu.

(1995). CORRELATORS OF VELOCITY DIFFERENCES AND ENERGYDISSIPATION AS AN ELEMENT IN THE SUBCRITICAL SCENARIO FOR NONKOLMOGOROV SCALING IN TURBULENCE. Europhysics Letters. 29:(4)291296. Abstract
We discuss the theoretical implications of the experimental results for the cross correlations between velocity differences and dissipative fields which are reported in the companion (preceding) letter (Europhys. Lett., 28 (1994) 635). The first implication is that 3d hydrodynamic turbulence has no conformal symmetry. Secondly, the experiment confirms the nonconformal scaling behaviour of such correlations as predicted by the analytical theory of the present authors. The results of the measurements lend support to the subcritical scenario that was suggested recently as an explanation of the nonKolmogorov scaling of the structure functions in large but finite Reynolds number turbulence.

We show that the Kolmogorov1941 picture of fully developed hydrodynamic turbulence (with the scaling of the structure functions S(n)(R) infinity R(n/3) necessarily leads to an anomalous scaling for correlation functions which include the rate of energy dissipation epsilon(t,r), these correlation functions being described by an independent index. The mechanism for anomalous scaling, suggested on the basis of the NavierStokes equation, is the multistep interaction of eddies from the inertial interval with eddies at the viscous scale via a set of eddies of intermediate scales.

(1995). ISOTROPIC AND ANISOTROPIC TURBULENCE IN CLEBSCH VARIABLES. Chaos Solitons & Fractals. 5:(10)18551869. Abstract
Threedimensional turbulence of incompressible fluid is described by using Clebsch canonical variables. This reveals the families of new local integrals of motion so that there are additional cascade spectra besides the energy cascade. A weakly anisotropic spectrum of developed turbulence is shown to be as universal as isotropic Kolmogorov spectrum. The correlation functions of threedimensional incompressible turbulence approach their isotropic values in the inertial interval so that the share taken by the anisotropic parts of velocity correlators decrease with the wavenumber as k(2/3), which satisfactorily fits the experimental data. The complementarity of the turbulence description in Clebsch and velocity variables is demonstrated.

(1995). EXACT RESUMMATIONS IN THE THEORY OF HYDRODYNAMIC TURBULENCE .1. THE BALL OF LOCALITY AND NORMAL SCALING. Physical Review E. 52:(4)38403857. Abstract
This paper is the first in a series of papers that aim at understanding the scaling behavior of hydrodynamic turbulence. We present in this paper a perturbative theory for the structure functions and the response functions of the hydrodynamic velocity field in real space and time. Starting from the NavierStokes equations (at high Reynolds number Re) we show that the standard perturbative expansions that suffer from infrared divergences can be exactly resummed using the BelinicherL'vov transformation. After this exact (partial) resummation it is proven that the resulting perturbation theory is free of divergences, both in large and in small spatial separations. The hydrodynamic response and the correlations have contributions that arise from mediated interactions which take place at some spacetime coordinates. It is shown that the main contribution arises when these coordinates lie within a shell of a ''ball of locality'' that is defined and discussed. We argue that the real spacetime formalism that is developed here offers a clear and intuitive understanding of every diagram in the theory, and of every element in the diagrams. One major consequence of this theory is that none of the familiar perturbative mechanisms may ruin the classical 1941 Kolmogorov (K41) scaling solution for the structure functions. Accordingly, corrections to the K41 solutions should be sought in nonperturbative effects. These effects are the subjects of paper II (the following paper) and a future paper in this series that will propose a mechanism for anomalous scaling in turbulence, which in particular allows a multiscaling of the structure functions.

(1995). EXACT RESUMMATIONS IN THE THEORY OF HYDRODYNAMIC TURBULENCE .2. A LADDER TO ANOMALOUS SCALING. Physical Review E. 52:(4)38583875. Abstract
In paper I of this series on fluid turbulence we showed that exact resummations of the perturbative theory of the structure functions of velocity differences result in a finite (order by order) theory. These findings exclude any known perturbative mechanism for anomalous scaling of the velocity structure functions. In this paper we continue to build the theory of turbulence and commence the analysis of nonperturbative effects that form the analytic basis of anomalous scaling. Starting from the NavierStokes equations (at high Reynolds number Re) we discuss the simplest examples of the appearance of anomalous exponents in fluid mechanics. These examples are the nonlinear (fourpoint) Green's function and related quantities. We show that the renormalized perturbation theory for these functions contains ''ladder'' diagrams with (convergent) logarithmic terms that sum up to anomalous exponents. Using a sum rule that is derived here we calculate the leading anomalous exponent and show that it is critical. This result opens up the possibility of multiscaling of the structure functions with the outer scale of turbulence as the renormalization length. This possibility will be discussed in detail in a concluding paper of this series.

(1994). HIDDEN SYMMETRY, EXACT RELATIONS, AND A SMALLPARAMETER IN THE KARDARPARISIZHANG PROBLEM WITH STRONGCOUPLING. Physical Review E. 49:(2)R959R962. Abstract
An exact relation between the Green's function and the dressed thirdorder vertex GAMMA was found for the KardarParisiZhang (KPZ) model of surface roughening in (1+d) dimensions. This relation, of the Wardidentity type, follows from a hidden symmetry of the problem, which generalizes in some sense the Galilean invariance of the KPZ equation. This relation allows one to conclude that in the region of strong coupling, GAMMA  GAMMA0 approximately 0.1GAMMA0, where GAMMA0 is the bare value of the vertex GAMMA. The identity is generalized for higherorder vertices, enabling us to predict some relations between observable correlation functions.

(1994). EXTENDED UNIVERSALITY IN MODERATEREYNOLDSNUMBER FLOWS. Physical Review E. 49:(5)40444051. Abstract
In the inertial interval of turbulence one asserts that the velocity structure functions S(n)(r) scale like r(nzetan). Recent experiments indicate that S. (r) has a more general universal form [rf(r/eta)]nzetan, where eta is the Kolmogorov viscous scale. This form seems to be obeyed on a range of scales that is larger than power law scaling. It is shown here that this extended universality stems from the structure of the NavierStokes equations and from the property of the locality of interactions. The approach discussed here allows us to estimate the range of validity of the universal form. In addition, we examine the possibility that the observed deviations from the classical values of zeta(n) = 1/3 are due to the finite values of the Reynolds numbers and the anisotropy of the excitation of turbulence.

(1994). SCALING OF CORRELATIONFUNCTIONS OF VELOCITYGRADIENTS IN HYDRODYNAMIC TURBULENCE. JETP Letters. 59:(8)577583. Abstract
As is demonstrated in Refs. 2 and 3 in the limit of infinitely large Reynolds numbers, the correlation functions of the velocity predicted by Kolmogorov's 1941 theory (K41) are actually solutions of diagrammatic equations. Here we demonstrate that correlation functions of the velocity derivatives, del(alpha)upsilon(beta), should possess scaling exponents which have no relation to the K41 dimensional estimates. This phenomenon is referred to as anomalous scaling. This result is proved in diagrammatic terms: We have extracted a series of logarithmically diverging diagrams, whose summation leads to the renarmalization of the normal K41 dimensions. For a description of the scaling of various functions of del(alpha)upsilon(beta), an infinite set of primary fields O(n) with independent scaling exponents DELTA(n) can be introduced. Symmetry reasons enable us to predict relations between the scaling of different correlation functions. We also formulate restrictions imposed on the structure of the correlation functions due to the incompressibility condition. We also propose some tests which make it possible to check experimentally the conformal symmetry of the turbulent correlation functions. Further, we demonstrate that the anomalous scaling behavior should reveal itself in the asymptotic behavior of the correlation functions of the velocity differences. We propose a method to obtain the anomalous exponents from the experiment.

(1994). FINITESIZE CORRECTIONS TO SCALING IN HIGH REYNOLDSNUMBER TURBULENCE. Physical Review Letters. 73:(3)432435. Abstract
We study analytically and numerically the corrections to scaling in turbulence which arise due to finite size effects as anisotropic forcing or boundary conditions at large scales. We find that the deviations deltazeta(m) from the classical Kolmogorov scaling zeta(m) = m/3 of the velocity moments [\u(k)\m] isproportionalto k(zeta)m decrease like deltazeta(m)(Re) = c(m) Re3/10. If, on the contrary, anomalous scaling in the inertial subrange can experimentally be verified in the large Re limit, this will support the suggestion that small scale structures should be responsible, originating from viscous effects either in the bulk (vortex tubes or sheets) or from the boundary layers (plumes or swirls), as both are underestimated in our reduced wave vector set approximation of the NavierStokes dynamics.

The properties of the correlation functions of solutions of the 1 + d KPZ equation in the region of the strong interaction of fluctuations are considered.

The possibility of alternative solutions is discussed.

(1993). THE SAGA OF YIGSPECTRA, THERMODYNAMICS, INTERACTION AND RELAXATION OF MAGNONS IN A COMPLEX MAGNET. Physics ReportsReview Section Of Physics Letters. 229:(3)81144. Abstract
A review of magnon properties of yttriumiron garnet (YIG), a classical object for experimental studies in magnetism, is presented. Both experimental and theoretical results concerned with thermodynamics and kinetics of YIG are described. The main purposes of the review are to introduce a new method of approximate calculation of the magnon spectra in magnets with large unit cell and to obtain by means of this method some basic properties of YIG. In particular, it is shown that the problem of calculating the frequencies of all the 20 magnon branches over the entire Brillouin zone contains two small parameters. First, because of the large number of magnetic atoms in the unit cell the distance between the nearest interacting magnetic atoms is small in comparison with the lattice constant and, accordingly, with the wavelength of a spin wave. An effective longwavelength character thus arises in the problem. Second, there are a large number of wavevector directions along which many elements of the Hamiltonian matrix vanish by symmetry in the basis which diagonalizes this matrix for k = 0. These matrix elements thus have an additional, angular smallness for arbitrary directions of k. These matrix elements can be taken into account using perturbation theory. As a result, the large elements of the Hamiltonian matrix are few in number, and they can be eliminated by several twodimensional rotations. Approximate expressions. differing from the computer calculations by less than or similar to 10%, are thus obtained for the frequencies. Neutron scattering data are used to find the values of the exchange integrals in YIG and to obtain the magnon spectra. It is shown that in the energy range T less than or similar to 260 K only magnons of the lower branch are excited; the spectrum of these ''ferromagnons'' is quadratic in the wave vector only up to 40 K and becomes linear in the region omega(k) greater than or similar to 40 K. For temperatures up to 400 K the temperature depe

(1993). PROOF OF SCALE INVARIANT SOLUTIONS IN THE KARDARPARISIZHANG AND KURAMOTOSIVASHINSKY EQUATIONS IN 1+1 DIMENSIONS  ANALYTICAL AND NUMERICAL RESULTS. Nonlinearity. 6:(1)2547. Abstract
Under the assumption that the KardarParisiZhang (KPZ) model possesses scale invariant solutions, there exists an exact calculation of the dynamic scaling exponent z = 3/2. In this paper we prove that both KPZ and the related KuramotoSivashinsky (KS) model indeed possess scale invariant solutions in 1+1 dimensions which are in fact the same for both models. The proof entails an examination of the higher order diagrams in the perturbation theory in terms of the dressed Green function and the correlator. Although each higher order diagram contains logarithmic divergences, endangering the existence of the scale invariant solution, we show that these divergences cancel in each order. The proof uses a fluctuationdissipation theorem (FDT), which is an exact result for Kpz in 1 + 1 dimensions. Since we prove that there are no divergences, all the diagrams are dominated by local interactions in kspace. This localink solution of the KPZ equation is also the solution of the Ks equation, because the two equations have the same nonlinearity, and the nonlinear term dominates in the longwavelength regime when z = 3/2 <2. Consequently we discover that KPZ and KS are equivalent in 1 + 1 dimensions, contrary to their behaviour in 2 + 1 dimensions. Our analytical results are supplemented with extensive numerical simulations of the KS equation. It is shown that in accordance with the analytical results the statistics of the simultaneous fluctuations in Ks are Gaussian, and that the dynamic exponent is z = 3/2.

(1993). LAW OF SPACEDECORRELATION FOR DEVELOPED HYDRODYNAMIC TURBULENCE. Physical Review E. 48:(2)R669R672. Abstract
Laws of decay of simultaneous manypoint correlators of turbulentvelocity differences are derived in the asymptotic region where either one space point or a group of points is far away from another group of points. An asymptotic decomposition rule of (n + m)point correlators in terms of (n + 1), (m + 1), and twopoint correlators is presented. These results may be directly applied or easily extended to the turbulence of cold electron plasma, convective turbulence, some problems of surface roughening at crystal growth, etc.

(1993). CROSSOVER OF SPECTRAL SCALING IN THERMAL TURBULENCE. Physical Review E. 47:(6)41614168. Abstract
The scaling ranges of temperature and velocity fluctuations in thermally driven turbulence are studied by analyzing the various contributions to the equations of motion. The crossover wave number k(B) between BolgianoObukhov and KolmogorovObukhov scaling is estimated in terms of the forcings. By evaluating the thermal and buoyant stirrings and dissipations of RayleighBenard convection experiments we find k(B) much larger than L1, the energycontaining scale, but smaller than (10eta)1, the viscous scale. For computer simulation of randomly thermal driven turbulence we find k(B) of the order of L1. This might explain why the BolgianoObukhov scaling was observed in laboratory experiments whereas KolmogorovObukhov scaling was found in computer simulation of thermally driven turbulence.

(1993). EXACT RELATIONS IN THE THEORY OF DEVELOPED HYDRODYNAMIC TURBULENCE. Physical Review E. 47:(3)17941802. Abstract
Exact relations of two types in the statistical theory of fully developed homogeneous isotropic turbulence in an incompressible fluid were found. The relations of the first type connect twopoint and threepoint objects of the theory which are correlation functions and susceptibilities. The second types of relations are the ''frequency sum rules'' which express some frequency integrals from ''fully dressed'' manypoint objects (like vertices) via corresponding bare values. Our approach is based on the NavierStokes equation in quasiLagrangian variables and on the generating functional technique for correlation functions and susceptibilities. The derivation of these relations uses no perturbation expansions and no additional assumptions. This means that the relations are exact in the framework of the statistical theory of turbulence. We showed that ''a manypoint scaling'' gives birth to the ''global scaling.'' Here ''manypoint scaling'' is the assumption that twopoint, threepoint, etc. objects of the theory of turbulence are uniform functions in the inertial interval and may be characterized by some scaling exponents. Under this assumption the only global scaleinvariant model of fully developed turbulence suggested by Kolmogorov [Dokl. Akad. Nauk SSSR 32, 19 (1941)] is consistent with the exact relations deduced.

(1993). INTERACTION LOCALITY AND SCALING SOLUTION IN D+1 KPZ AND KS MODELS. Europhysics Letters. 22:(6)419423. Abstract
Properties of correlation functions of solutions of KPZ and KS equations (that describe roughening) in the region of strong interaction of fluctuations are considered. We prove analytically a possibility of existence of a scaling solution in this region despite the > situation occurring near the marginal dimension d = 2 (corresponding to growth of an interface in a real threedimensional space). The proof is based on the locality of the interaction of fluctuations in kspace which can be demonstrated by passing to socalled quasiLagrangian variables. The inequalities restricting possible values of scaling indices are found.

(1992). COUNTERBALANCED INTERACTION LOCALITY OF DEVELOPED HYDRODYNAMIC TURBULENCE. Physical Review A. 46:(8)47624772. Abstract
The problem of interaction locality in k space is studied in a diagrammatic perturbation approach for the NavierStokes equation in quasiLagrangian variables. Analyzing the whole diagram series we have found an exact relation between the asymptotic behavior of the triplecorrelation function of velocities that governs the energy transfer over scales and the doublecorrelation function giving the energy distribution. Namely, at r > k) are shown to decrease by the same law with the distance in k space, such as (k1/k)2zeta2 and (k/k2)2zeta2. It means a balance of interactions for such a spectrum. Considering, in particular, the multifractal picture of developed turbulence, we analyze the range of exponents h of the velocity field [deltav (r) isproportionalto r(h)] which provides the locality of interaction in the k space. It is shown that the condition of infrared locality of interaction (with larger k1eddies) could give only the upper restriction for the exponent. The upper limit thus found (h(max) = 1) coincides with the boundary exponent of singularity of energy dissipation. As far as an interaction locality in the ultraviolet limit (k2 >> k) is concerned, we prove that any reasonable dimension function D(h) provides locality whatever small h is considered.

(1992). COMPARISON OF THE SCALE INVARIANT SOLUTIONS OF THE KURAMOTOSIVASHINSKY AND KARDARPARISIZHANG EQUATIONS IN DDIMENSIONS. Physical Review Letters. 69:(24)35433546. Abstract
It is shown that the scale invariant solutions of the KS and KPZ models of surface roughening are identical for dimensions d <2, but may differ for dimensions d greaterthanorequalto 2 in the strong coupling limit. For d greaterthanorequalto 2, these models posses two different scaling solutions, one with dindependent scaling exponents y = z = 2, and the other with ddependent nontrivial exponents The first of these solutions is realizable in one of these models, but not the other. These conclusions are valid to all orders in renormalized perturbation theory.

(1992). SURFACE ROUGHENING AND THE LONGWAVELENGTH PROPERTIES OF THE KURAMOTOSIVASHINSKY EQUATION. Physical Review A. 46:(6)32203224. Abstract
The longwavelength properties of the KuramotoSivashinsky equation are studied in 2 + 1 dimensions using numerical and analytic techniques. It is shown that this equation is not in the universality class of the KardarParisiZhang model. Its roughening exponents are (up to logarithmic corrections) like those of the freefield theory, with dimension 2 being the marginal dimension for roughening. Assuming that the solution has logarithmic corrections, we derive a scaling relation for the exponents of the logarithmic terms. This solution is consistent order by order with the DysonWyld diagrams. We explain why previous renormalizationgroup treatments failed.

(1992). CONSERVATIONLAWS AND 2FLUX SPECTRA OF HYDRODYNAMIC CONVECTIVE TURBULENCE. Physica D. 57:(2Jan)8595. Abstract
The stationary spectrum of hydrodynamic convective turbulence is shown to be defined by influxes of two independent motion integrals: entropy and mechanical energy. A careful analysis of the conservation laws is performed. It is shown that in the inertial range of scales kinetic energy converts into potential energy due to presence of temperature fluctuations independently of the type of longscale stratification (stable or unstable one). Under a purely entropic excitation (for example, by horizontal temperature gradient) the spectrum with constant entropy flux, F(vv) approximately k21/5, fills the whole of the inertial interval and crossover to the KolmogorovObukhov spectrum with constant energy flux, F(vv) approximately k11/3, is absent. An estimate for crossover scale is obtained for a mixed method of excitation with both nonzero energy pumping and nonzero entropy extraction caused by an environment. A simple but consistent differential model is suggested for the description of the fluxes of energy and entropy in kspace. Twoflux universal spectra of the velocity and temperature fluctuations are obtained.

(1991). SCALE INVARIANTTHEORY OF FULLYDEVELOPED HYDRODYNAMIC TURBULENCE  HAMILTONIAN APPROACH. Physics ReportsReview Section Of Physics Letters. 207:(1)147. Abstract
The statistical theory of fully developed homogeneous turbulence of an incompressible fluid presented here is based on the Hamiltonian equations for an ideal fluid in the Clebsch variables using the Wyld diagram technique. This theory is formulated in terms of the local Green function G(r, k, omega) and the local pair correlation function N(r, k, omega) describing the statistical properties of keddies in the vicinity of pointtau. One of the major difficulties arising from the masking effect of the sweeping interaction is effectively solved by transforming to a moving reference system associated with the fluid velocity in some reference point r0. This change of coordinates eliminates the sweeping of keddies in a region of scale 1/k surrounding the reference point r0. The convergence of all the integrals in the diagrams of arbitrary order of perturbation theory both in the IR and UV regions, is proved. This gives a diagrammatic proof of the KolmogorovObukhov hypothesis that the dynamic interaction of eddies is local. In the inertial interval, the scale invariant solution of the DysonWyld diagram equations has been obtained, which is consistent with the known RichardsonKolmogorovObukhov concept of fully developed uniform turbulence. This new theory provides techniques for calculating the statistical characteristics of turbulence. For the purpose of illustration the asymptotic form of the simultaneous manypoint velocity correlation functions when one of the wave vectors or the sum of a group of wave vectors tends to zero, is calculated.

(1991). SPECTRA OF VELOCITY AND TEMPERATUREFLUCTUATIONS WITH CONSTANT ENTROPY FLUX OF FULLYDEVELOPED FREECONVECTIVE TURBULENCE. Physical Review Letters. 67:(6)687690. Abstract
It is shown that the frequencytemperature spectrum recently observed by Wu et al. in developed convective turbulence, F(TT)(omega) isproportionaltoomega1/4, follows from the condition that the entropy flux in k space is constant. just as the KolmogorovObukhov spectrum of barotropic turbulence, F(VV)(k) congruentto (epsilon/rho)2/3k11/3, follows from the condition that kineticenergy fluxepsilon(k) = epsilon. On the contrary, for convective turbulenceepsilon(k) changes as k4/5 because of conversion of kinetic energy into a potential energy, which leads to a stronger k dependence of the double velocity moment [F(VV)(k) infinity k21/5] than that for barotropic turbulence.
