Ideal magnetofluid turbulence in two dimensions

A continuum model of coherent structures in two-dimensional magnetohydro-dynamic turbulence is developed. These structures are macroscopic states which persist among the turbulent microscopic fluctuations, typically as magnetic islands with flow. They are modeled as statistical equilibrium states fo...
