Download The Physics of Fluid Turbulence by W. D. McComb PDF

By W. D. McComb

This e-book offers an in-depth examine fluid turbulence: the archetypal non-linear, non-equilibrium challenge of statistical physics which has witnessed major growth in recent times, facilitated by means of advances in laser anemometry, machine know-how, and theoretical tools from quantum physics. an absolutely built-in paintings, The Physics of Fluid Turbulence techniques its topic as a common phenomenon with a common habit. It features a concise precis of the speculation and perform of turbulence technology as much as 1960, by means of an in depth research of more moderen advancements during this region, together with a rigorous formula of the turbulence challenge for example of a non-equilibrium statistical procedure with powerful coupling, besides the appliance of renormalized perturbation thought. Designed for these new to the topic, the ebook can also be beneficial to people who are acquainted with the research of turbulence yet haven't but approached the topic using the theoretical tools from quantum physics which are coated right here.
