Abstract

We calculate the topological noise characterizing the direction of line vortices in superfluid and classical turbulence by finding the intersection of line vortices with square surfaces of edge length ls positioned normal to three orthogonal axes. In the case of homogeneous superfluid turbulence in thermal counterflow, we find that the noise scales as ls along the two directions normal to the counterflow and as ls3/2 along the direction parallel to it. In homogeneous isotropic superfluid turbulence, at T → 0 K, the noise scales as ls7/4. In homogeneous isotropic classical turbulence, the scaling is ls2. We offer possible interpretations of the computed scalings, as well as justification for their differences.
