Nonlinear Dynamics and Turbulence

  • M. I. Rabinovich
Part of the Research Reports in Physics book series (RESREPORTS)


The evolution of the concepts of the dynamical theory of turbulence in recent fifty years is considered. The relationship between the dimension of turbulence in real flows and supercriticality is elucidated. It is shown that the development of turbulence downstream can be described using methods of nonlinear dynamics.
