Turbulence for (and by) amateurs
by

Publisher: arXiv
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.
