The breakdown of turbulent eddies can be characterized by sets of "multipliers," defined as ratios of velocity increments at successively smaller scales. These quantities were introduced by Kolmogorov, who hypothesized their self-similar statistics and independence at distant scales. Here we report experimental and numerical results on the statistics of these multipliers, for both their magnitude and sign. We show that the multipliers at adjacent scales are not independent but that theirdoi:10.1103/physrevlett.90.254501 pmid:12857138 fatcat:prrcfwtywfgcdf7byvbsyk7i2q
