In his 1936 paper on collisions between charged particles subject to the Coulomb potential, Landau introduced a current whose divergence is the collision integral. This talk discusses applications of Landau’s idea to some classical notions in wave turbulence, such as Kolmogorov-Zakharov profiles (Work with M. Escobedo and L. Saint-Raymond).
