Formal manipulations of the one-dimensional inviscid and unforced Burgers equation suggest that the energy spectrum $E(k)$  might follow a $|k|^{-3}$ rather than the $|k|^{-2}$, generally associated with shocks. The use of the Fourier-Lagrangian solution, introduced by Fournier and Frisch (L'equation de Burgers deterministe et statistique. 1983. J. Mec. Theor. Appl, vol. 2, pp. 699-750.) shows that the spurious $|k|^{-3}$ solutions stem from an improper use of the multi-stream behaviour associated with the Burgers-Vlasov equation. This will be a blackboard lecture intended for advanced students and specialists in PDEs, field theory and/or catastrophy theory.
