Abstract (translation from
French physicists have experimentally established that a ferrofluid
may be in a regime of magnetic wave turbulence - chaotic formation of
surface waves with varying amplitude. Such a situation is possible when
the induction of external magnetic field oriented perpendicularly to
surface of the ferrofluid surface exceeds a certain value. The results
experiment agree well with the previously developed theory of magnetic
wave turbulence on ferrofluids and are the first direct
