**Statistical Mechanics of Two-dimensional and Geophysical Flows**

by Freddy Bouchet, Antoine Venaille

**Publisher**: arXiv 2011**Number of pages**: 137

**Description**:

The theoretical study of the self-organization of two-dimensional and geophysical turbulent flows is addressed based on statistical mechanics methods. This review is a self-contained presentation of classical and recent works on this subject; from the statistical mechanics basis of the theory up to applications to Jupiter's troposphere and ocean vortices and jets.
