Introduction to Statistical Theory of Fluid Turbulence
by Mahendra K. Verma
Publisher: arXiv 2005
Number of pages: 40
Fluid and plasma flows exhibit complex random behaviour at high Reynolds numbers; this phenomena is called turbulence. This text is a brief introduction to the statistical theory of fluid turbulence, with emphasis on field-theoretic treatment of renormalized viscosity and energy fluxes.

Many organisms move through water or air in order to survive and reproduce. It is useful to analyze fluid motion as a collection of vortices: vortices interact with the moving organism, interact with each other, and evolve independently in time.

These lecture notes have been prepared as a first course in fluid mechanics up to the presentation of the millennium problem listed by the Clay Mathematical Institute. Our primary goal is to debunk this beautiful problem as much as possible.
