NP6.4/PS9.4Solar wind and astrophysical turbulence and shocks (co-organized)
|Convener: L. Sorriso-Valvo | Co-Convener: J. M. Redondo|
Nonlinear phenomena are extremely important in space and solar plasma physics, as well as in other astrophysical systems. Spacecraft data analysis, numerical simulations and theoretical models are used and compared, to understand the physical processes occurring in such systems. Specific topics include phenomena related with turbulence and shocks in Astrophysical environments. For example, new numerical and experimental techniques and observations. Direct numerical simulation, large-eddy simulation and turbulence models of compressible and hypersonic/hyperalfvenic flows. Mixing and Coherent structures in Astrophysical flows. Experimental, numerical and theoretical studies of instabilities and shocks. This session also collects contributions concerned with broad topics in nonlinear processes occurring in space, solar and astrophysical plasmas, such as turbulence, shock waves, particle acceleration, dissipation mechanisms, etc.
