**Turbulence for (and by) amateurs**

by Denis Bernard

**Publisher**: arXiv 2000**Number of pages**: 37

**Description**:

Series of lectures on statistical turbulence written for amateurs but not experts. Elementary aspects and problems of turbulence in two and three dimensional Navier-Stokes equation are introduced. A few properties of scalar turbulence and transport phenomena in turbulent flows are described. Kraichnan's model of passive advection is discussed a bit more precisely.
