Abstract:

The existence of equilibrium ranges in homogeneous hydromagnetic turbulence is analyzed by using Fourier techniques. It is found that the reasons for believing in the existence of the equilibrium range in classical turbulence non-conducting fluid also hold for hydromagnetic turbulence. The presence of an external magnetic field has the effect of rendering the turbulence field axisymmetric about those magnetic lines. The second problem considered is the asymptotic form of different correlation tensors at large separation distance in homogeneous hydromagnetic turbulence. The third problem considered is a theory of weak turbulence where one can neglect the role of pressure forces in developing power laws. Lastly, is considered the final period of decay. Author
