The suppression of short waves by a train of long waves
Published online by Cambridge University Press: 26 April 2006
It is shown that a train of long waves can suppress a short-wave field due to four-wave resonance interactions. These interactions lead to the diffusion (in Fourier space) of the wave action of the short-wave field, so that the wave action is transported to the regions of higher wavenumbers, where it dissipates more effectively. The diffusion equation is derived.
