1308.0852 (Davide Proment et al.)

Interaction and decay of Kelvin waves in the Gross-Pitaevskii model    [PDF]

Davide Proment, Carlo F. Barenghi, Miguel Onorato
By solving numerically the governing Gross-Pitaevskii equation, we study the dynamics of Kelvin waves on a superfluid vortex. After determining the dispersion relation, we monitor the turbulent decay of Kelvin waves with energy initially concentrated at large length scales. At intermediate length scales, we find that the decay is consistent with scaling predictions of theoretical models. Finally we report the unexpected presence of large-length scale phonons in the system.
