Statistical properties of passive scalar in a random flow with a strong shear component

Physics Letters A. 2012. Vol. 376. P. 1836-1838.
Kolokolov I., Nguyen Thanh T.
We study mixing of passive scalar by a chaotic velocity field with a relatively strong regular shear component. We show that the tail of partition distribution function (PDF) of coarse-grained passive scalar field differs qualitatively from the corresponding asymptotics in the case of isotropic flow statistics.
