Numerical analysis of weakly nonlinear wave turbulence


We consider the propagation of weakly nonlinear waves such as plasma waves, surface water waves, the interaction of laser beams with matter, particle accelerators, etc. Specifically, we study internal waves in the ocean. Hamilton's principle is used to write the fluid equations in Hamiltonian form in terms of linear eigenmode amplitudes. Numerical studies are made of the effect of Fourier grid size and resonance widths. Statistical information is generated from an ensemble of initial states of the random wave field.
