Statistical Mechanics of Two-dimensional and Geophysical Flows
by

Publisher: arXiv
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.

A theory of subsonic flight based on a combination of analysis and computation. We uncover a mechanism for the generation of substantial lift at the expense of small drag of a wing, which is fundamentally different from the classical theories.
