Universality Classes of the Hwa-Kardar Model with Turbulent Advection

Research outputpeer-review


Self-organized critical system in turbulent fluid environment is studied with the renormalization group analysis. The system is modelled by the anisotropic stochastic differential equation for a coarse-grained field proposed by Hwa and Kardar [Phys. Rev. Lett. 62, 1813 (1989)]. The turbulent motion of the environment is described by the anisotropic d-dimensional velocity ensemble based on the one introduced by Avellaneda and Majda [Commun. Math. Phys. 131, 381 (1990)] and modified to include dependence on time (finite correlation time). Renormalization group analysis reveals three universality classes (types of critical behavior) differentiated by the parameters of the system.
