Isotropic Turbulence with Coupled Microstructures. II: Quantum Turbulence
This chapter is devoted to Quantum turbulence in superfluid helium and Bose-Einstein condensates. Basic equations and theories related to the Gross-Pitaevski equation, the vortex filament model and the two-fluid hydrodynamic model are discussed. The links between the different theories are emphasized. Main physical mechanisms and models at both hydrodynamic and quantum scales (pseudo-Kolmogorov cascade, Kelvin waves and Kelvin wave cascade, vortex reconnection, dissipative mechanisms, mutual friction effects ...) are detailed.
