Turbulence and distributed chaos with spontaneously broken symmetry [CL]


It is shown that in turbulent flows the distributed chaos with spontaneously broken translational space symmetry (homogeneity) has a stretch exponential spectrum $\exp-(k/k_{\beta})^{\beta }$ with $\beta =1/2$. Good agreement has been established between the theory and the data of direct numerical simulation of a channel flow. An astrophysical application to the large-scale galaxies distribution has been briefly discussed and good agreement with the data of recent Sloan Digital Sky Survey SDSS-III has been established.
