About the Authors
  • The articles in this volume, derived from a symposium held at the Newton Institute in Cambridge, examine a number of key questions that have engaged turbulence researchers for many years. Most involve mathematical analysis, but some describe numerical simulations and experimental results that focus on these questions. However, all are addressed to a wide cross-section of the turbulence community, namely mathematicians, engineers and scientists.

    • Was the first book on important and exciting topic within turbulence
    • Leading scientists contributed
    • Broad appeal to mathematicians, scientists and engineers

    Reviews & endorsements

    " The production of the book is up to the high standards we customarily expect of Cambridge University Press. The uniform layout of the papers stands in contrast to that of many similar collections. The Isaac Newton Institute, the organizers of the program on turbulence, the editors of this volume, the contributors, and the publisher all deserve our gradtitude for providing the setting for the presentation of this work and for so rapidly and attrctively disseminating it to the research community." AIAA Jrnl

    "There is no shortage of intellectual stimulation." SIAM Review

    "...recommended to a wide audience of mathematicians, engineers and scientists interested in gaining an understanding of turbulence, since it is a high-level state-of-the-art presentation of one of the intensively developing key directions of research in this field." Mathematical Reviews
