Turbulent state of spectrally stable shear flows may be developed and sustained according to the bypass scenario of transition. If it works in non-magnetised boundless and homogeneous quasi-Keplerian flow, transiently growing shearing vortices should supply turbulence with energy. Employing the large shearing box approximation, as well as a set of global disc models, we study the optimal growth of the shearing vortices in such a flow in the whole range of azimuthal length-scales, $\lambda_y$, as compared to the flow scale-height, $H$.

The mechanism of transition from laminar state to turbulent state in Keplerian disks is still unknown. The most popular version today is generation of turbulence due to magnetorotational instability (MRI). However magnetohydrodynamic simulations give the value of Shakura-Sunyaev parameter more then an order of magnitude smaller rather than that found from observations. Read More

This paper reviews some aspects of one of the major unsolved problems in understanding astrophysical (in particular, accretion) disks: whether the disk interiors may be effectively viscous in spite of the absence of marnetorotational instability? In this case a rotational homogeneous inviscid flow with a Keplerian angular velocity profile is spectrally stable, making the transient growth of perturbations a candidate mechanism for energy transfer from the regular motion to perturbations. Transient perturbations differ qualitatively from perturbation modes and can grow substantially in shear flows due to the nonnormality of their dynamical evolution operator. Since the eigenvectors of this operator, alias perturbation modes, are mutually nonorthogonal, they can mutually interfere, resulting in the transient growth of their linear combinations. Read More

We study linear transient dynamics in a thin Keplerian disc employing a method based on variational formulation of optimisation problem. It is shown that in a shearing sheet approximation due to a prominent excitation of density waves by vortices the most rapidly growing shearing harmonic has azimuthal wavelength, $\lambda_y$, of order of the disc thickness, $H$, and its initial shape is always nearly identical to a vortex having the same potential vorticity. Also, in the limit $\lambda_y\gg H$ the optimal growth $G\propto (\Omega/\kappa)^4$, where $\Omega$ and $\kappa$ stand for local rotational and epicyclic frequencies, respectively, what suggests that transient growth of large scale vortices can be much stronger in areas with non-Keplerian rotation, e.

A thin gaseous disc with an almost keplerian angular velocity profile, bounded by a free surface and rotating around point-mass gravitating object is nearly spectrally stable. Despite that the substantial transient growth of linear perturbations measured by the evolution of their acoustic energy is possible. This fact is demonstrated for the simple model of a non-viscous polytropic thin disc of a finite radial size where the small adiabatic perturbations are considered as a linear combination of neutral modes with a corotational radius located beyond the outer boundary of the flow.
