Topics in MHO Turbulence


Lithwick, Yoram (2002) Topics in MHO Turbulence. Dissertation (Ph.D.), California Institute of Technology. doi:10.7907/FP3Q-EZ29.


I consider two topics in MHD turbulence. First, I work out the theory of compressible MHD turbulence, including kinetic effects. I use this theory to understand features of interstellar scintillation that have hitherto been unexplained. Second, I work out the theory of imbalanced weak MHD turbulence.
