This book aims to give students the background to understand current research books on turbulence. To achieve this, it mixes a specialized review of advanced developments with elementary derivations of basic concepts or calculations.
There is no complete theory of turbulence in fluid mechanics. The scope of this subject involves a wide spectrum of topics: fluid motion equations, statistical tools, stability theory, transition to turbulence, turbulence modeling, and so on. In few pages, this book presents a panorama of distinct approaches, in the manner of a handbook. A large number of items are at least mentioned, if not treated in depth.
