In the previous chapter we saw that under reasonable initial conditions at 0.2 AU it is possible to generate a proton temperature profile close to \(R^{-1}\) in the [0.2, 1] AU interval, solely from the contribution of turbulent heating, starting with a gyrotropic initial spectrum with \(M=1\), \(\epsilon =0.2\). It is thus interesting to generalize this study by examining whether one can reproduce the 1/R temperature profile also when starting with different spectral geometries, in particular the one specific of fast winds.
