Two-dimensional electron magnetohydrodynamic turbulence
A novel type of turbulence, which arises in 2-dimensional electron magnetohydrodynamics, is studied by numerical simulation. Energy dissipation rates are found to be independent of the dissipation coefficients. The energy spectrum (Ek) follows the basic Kolmogorov-type predictions, k(-5/3) for kd(e) > 1 and k(-7/3) for kd(e) < 1 (d(e) is the electron inertial length) and is hence independent of the linear wave properties. Results are compared with other 2-dimensional turbulent systems.
