FIG. 1.

Schematic of the initial conditions specifying two perpendicularly polarized, counterpropagating Alfvén waves overlapping within a periodic domain.

Image of FIG. 2.
FIG. 2.

Schematic diagram of the Fourier modes in the perpendicular plane arising in the asymptotic solution. The Fourier modes depicted are the primary modes (circles), secondary modes (triangles), and tertiary modes (squares). Filled symbols denote the key Fourier modes that play a role in the secular transfer of energy to small scales in the Alfvén wave collision. The parallel wavenumber for each of the modes is indicated by the diagonal grey lines, a consequence of the resonance conditions for the wavevector.
