A method to quantify the energy transfer among turbulent structures using singular value decomposition (SVD) is presented. We apply the method to numerical turbulence data obtained from a global plasma simulation using the Hasegawa-Wakatani fluid model, in which the Kelvin-Helmholtz instability plays a dominant role. Using the SVD method, …

The novel technique of dynamical mode decomposition (DMD) is applied to the outputs of a numerical simulation of Kelvin-Helmholtz turbulence in a cylindical plasma, so as to capture and quantify the time evolution of the dominant nonlinear structures. These structures comprise rotationally symmetric deformations together with spiral patterns, which…
