## A Equipartition between Longitudinal and Transverse Modes

The equation of motion for the field Ψ (written in Fourier space) is

Now, we wish to decompose the field into transverse and longitudinal pieces. Let us call them ηk and ζk. That is,

where

Notice that not only are the longitudinal and transverse pieces coupled to one another, but more importantly they source each other. Hence, we expect virialization between them due to such non-linear gravitational dynamics during DM halo formation, ultimately leading to equipartition of power amongst them. That is, 2/3 of the total power would be in the transverse sector, with the remaining 1/3 in the longitudinal sector.

Using codes based on the split-Fourier technique [73, 91–93], we have performed simulations of the Schrodinger -Poisson vector system [31, 64, 94] (physical space version of Eq. (A.1)):
