THREE-DRIFT WAVE INTERACTION AT FINITE PARALLEL WAVELENGTH - BIFURCATIONS AND TRANSITION TO TURBULENCE
The generic properties of the non-linear interaction of three drift waves with finite k-11 are investigated. The different types of stationary or quasi-stationary states are characterized by the bifurcation diagram in gamma-1, kappa parameter space, where gamma-1 measures the mode excitation and kappa the parallel wave number. The transition to turbulence corresponds exactly to the Ruelle-Takens picture: steady state --> periodic solution --> doubly periodic solution --> turbulence, in contrast to the period doubling route usually observed in low dimensional dynamic systems.
