**Introduction to Statistical Theory of Fluid Turbulence**

by Mahendra K. Verma

**Publisher**: arXiv 2005**Number of pages**: 40

**Description**:

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.

**Some Open Questions in Hydrodynamics**

by

**Mateusz Dyndal, Laurent Schoeffel**-

**arXiv**

There are many deep open questions that come with the theory of fluid mechanics. We discuss some of them that we classify in two categories, the long term behavior of solutions of equations of hydrodynamics and the definition of initial conditions.
