RESONANT AMPLIFICATION OF TURBULENCE BY THE BLAST WAVES
Abstract
We discuss the idea of whether spherical blast waves can amplify by a nonlocal resonant hydrodynamic mechanism inhomogeneities formed by turbulence or phase segregation in the interstellar medium. We consider the problem of a blastwaveturbulence interaction in the Linear Interaction Approximation. Mathematically, this is an eigenvalue problem for finding the structure and amplitude of eigenfunctions describing the response of the shockwave flow to forced oscillations by external perturbations in the ambient interstellar medium. Linear analysis shows that the blast wave can amplify density and vorticity perturbations for a wide range of length scales with amplification coefficients of up to 20, with increasing amplification the larger the length. There also exist resonant harmonics for which the gain becomes formally infinite in the linear approximation. Their orbital wavenumbers are within the range of macro (l ∼ 1), meso (l ∼ 20), and microscopic (l > 200) scales. Since the resonance width is narrow (typically, Δl < 1), resonance should select and amplify discrete isolated harmonics. We speculate on a possible explanation of an observed regular filamentary structure of regularly shaped round supernova remnants such as SNR 1572, 1006, or 050967.5. Resonant mesoscales found (l ≈ 18) are surprisingly close to the observedmore »

It is shown that the presence of high frequency electron plasma wave turbulence can nonlinearly amplify obliquely propagating, electrostatic, ion cyclotron modes.

Resonant amplification of magnetic seed fields by gravitational waves in the early universe
Inflation is known to produce both gravitational waves and seed magnetic fields on scales well beyond the size of the horizon. The general relativistic study of the interaction between these two sources after the end of inflation, showed a significant amplification of the initial magnetic seed which brought the latter within the currently accepted dynamo limits. In the present article we revisit this gravitomagnetic interaction and argue that the observed strong growth of the field is the result of resonance. More specifically, we show that the maximum magnetic boost always occurs when the wavelength of the inducing gravitational radiation andmore » 
Increased electron temperature turbulence during suppression of edge localized mode by resonant magnetic perturbations in the DIIID tokamak [Increased electron temperature turbulence during edge localized mode (ELM) suppression by resonant magnetic perturbations (RMPs) in the DIIID tokamak]
We report the first observation of increased edge electron temperature turbulence correlated with changes in gradients and the ELM suppression time which occurs after the application of resonant magnetic perturbations (RMP) on DIIID Hmode plasmas. This increase (T ^{~} _{e}/T _{e} approximately doubles) occurs in the region extending from the top of the pedestal outward to the upper part of the edge steep gradient region. This is significant as it is consistent with increased turbulence driven transport potentially replacing some part of the edge localized mode (ELM) driven transport. However, temperature turbulence does not change with the initial RMP applicationmore » 
Magnetic field amplification in nonlinear diffusive shock acceleration including resonant and nonresonant cosmicray driven instabilities
We present a nonlinear Monte Carlo model of efficient diffusive shock acceleration where the magnetic turbulence responsible for particle diffusion is calculated selfconsistently from the resonant cosmicray (CR) streaming instability, together with nonresonant short and longwavelength CRcurrentdriven instabilities. We include the backpressure from CRs interacting with the strongly amplified magnetic turbulence which decelerates and heats the superAlfvénic flow in the extended shock precursor. Uniquely, in our planeparallel, steadystate, multiscale model, the full range of particles, from thermal (∼eV) injected at the viscous subshock to the escape of the highest energy CRs (∼PeV) from the shock precursor, are calculated consistently withmore » 
ON THE AMPLIFICATION OF MAGNETIC FIELD BY A SUPERNOVA BLAST SHOCK WAVE IN A TURBULENT MEDIUM
We have performed extensive twodimensional magnetohydrodynamic simulations to study the amplification of magnetic fields when a supernova blast wave propagates into a turbulent interstellar plasma. The blast wave is driven by injecting high pressure in the simulation domain. The interstellar magnetic field can be amplified by two different processes, occurring in different regions. One is facilitated by the fluid vorticity generated by the 'rippled' shock front interacting with the background turbulence. The resulting turbulent flow keeps amplifying the magnetic field, consistent with earlier work. The other process is facilitated by the growth of the RayleighTaylor instability at the contact discontinuitymore »
