Coupled flows and oscillations in asymmetric rotating plasmas

Nonlinear coupling among the radial, axial, and azimuthal flows in an asymmetric cold rotating plasma is considered nonperturbatively. Exact solutions describing an expanding or contracting plasma with oscillations are then obtained. It is shown that despite the flow asymmetry the energy in the radial and axial flow components can be transferred to the azimuthal component but not the vice versa, and that flow oscillations need not be accompanied by density oscillations.
