A model of weak turbulence amenable to solution is investigated. There are three modes of interacting waves whose laws of dispersion are so chosen that it is possible to go over to the diffusion approximation in k-space. The steady-state spectrum of the turbulence in the presence of regions of instability, transparency and damping is found. The formal apparatus of nonlinear wave dynamics is also discussed.
