Symmetries and Interaction Coefficients of Kelvin Waves

  • Vladimir V. Lebedev
  • Victor S. L’vov


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’vov-Nazarenko energy spectrum of Kelvin waves.
