About the Authors
  • In the second edition of their successful textbook, Professors Landahl and Mollo-Christensen have taken the opportunity to include recent developments in the field of chaos and its applications to turbulent flow. This timely update continues the original theme of the book: presenting the fundamental concepts and the basic methods of fluid flow turbulence that enable the reader to follow the literature and understand current research. The emphasis on the dynamic processes that create and maintain turbulent flows gives this book an original approach.

    • Second edition of highly successful text
    •  Includes recent developments in turbulence and chaos

    Reviews & endorsements

    "This small book is a gem that should be widely appreciated...It is clean, useful, and almost elegant in its confident approach to the subject." Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society

    "...an easy to read introduction to turbulence, instabilities and transitions....successfully reviews a large class of nonlinear phenomena in fluids (solitons, deterministic chaos, transitions, fully developed turbulence) without many technical details....provides a good bibliography....very valuable in that it rapidly provides a good fundamental background to engineers who have to cope with realistic problems in fluids." P. L. Sulem, Mathematical Reviews
