Abstract

An overview is given on the observation that the Kolmogorov spectra predicted by weak turbulence theory for surface gravity waves agree with numerical simulations of the Euler equations. This result is important for many fields in physics because it supports the idea that the formation of power laws in the power spectrum of ensembles of stochastic weakly nonlinearly interacting waves may generally be explained using weak turbulence theory.
