Abstract: Observations reveal nearly power-law spectra of magnetic and density plasma fluctuations at the subproton scales in the solar wind, which indicates the presence of a turbulent cascade. We discuss the three-field and two-field models for micro-scale plasma fluctuations, and then present the results of numerical simulations of a two-field model of kinetic-Alfvén turbulence, which describes plasma motion at sub-proton scales.
