On the spectrum of magnetic field and scalar impurity fluctuations in acoustic turbulence

  • S. I. Vainshtein


The fluctuations of a magnetic field in acoustic turbulence are examined. An equation is derived for the spectral tensor of homogeneous magnetic field fluctuations. In a certain limit case the spectrum of steady-state pulsations is obtained in the presence of an external source. It is shown that three kinds of spectra exist in an inertial subdomain, each of which corresponds to a definite domain in wave space. Analogous results have been obtained for the fluctuations of a homogeneous scalar impurity.
