Mathematical and physical theory of turbulence

This book presents the proceedings of an international turbulence workshop held at the University of Central Florida in 2003. Over a dozen contributions, written by leading experts of this highly interdisciplinary research field, cover all aspects of what is meant by turbulence according to the present state of knowledge. Among others, the contributions deal with two-dimensional turbulence, statistical as well as wavelet type analysis, the relation to the problem of regularity of Navier-Stokes flow, numerical experiments, geophysical flows, magneto-hydrodynamics effects, to name just a few. The book is primarily aimed at experts in the field but applied mathematicians and engineers will find it interesting as well.
