Quantized turbulence physics

Abstract

We elaborate the physics of systems of unconstrained, reconnecting vortex filaments with dynamic finite cores of uniform ("quantized") circulation interacting via Biot-Savart and viscous forces. The phenomenology of this purely structured turbulent system includes an inertial range with Kolmogorov's k^–5/3 scaling for the energy spectrum, as well as Kolmogorov's linear in r scaling for the third order longitudinal structure function.
