    Nonlinear evolution of Alfven turbulence is discussed within the framework of the derivative nonlinear Schroedinger equation (DNLS), a subset of the hall-MHD equation set, which includes quasi-parallel propagating right-and left-hand polarized Alfv én wave modes. By numerically time integrating the equation with periodic boundary conditions, we discuss relationship between generation of wave phase coherence and self-organization of the system due to birth of Alfv én solitons.
