Universal profile of the vortex condensate in two-dimensional turbulence

Laurie, Jason ; Boffetta, Guido ; Falkovich, Gregory ; Kolokolov, Igor ; Lebedev, Vladimir (2014)

An inverse turbulent cascade in a restricted two-dimensional periodic domain creates a condensate—a pair of coherent system-size vortices. We perform extensive numerical simulations of this system and carry out theoretical analysis based on momentum and energy exchanges... View more
