Metamorphosis of Plasma Turbulence-shear-flow Dynamics through a Transcritical Bifurcation

Ball, Rowena; Dewar, Robert; Sugama, H


The structural properties of an economical model for a confined plasma turbulence governor are investigated through bifurcation and stability analyses. A close relationship is demonstrated between the underlying bifurcation framework of the model and typical behavior associated with low- to high-confinement transitions such as shear-flow stabilization of turbulence and oscillatory collective action. In particular, the analysis evinces two types of discontinuous transition that are qualitatively...[Show more]
