Homogeneous, Isotropic Turbulence: Phenomenology, Renormalization and Statistical Closures

W. David McComb


The aim of this book is to elucidate, and help resolve, some of the outstanding issues in fundamental turbulence theory. Accordingly, it is restricted to homogeneous, isotropic turbulence (HIT). It concentrates on statistical closures and their associated phenomenology. It is in three parts and begins with a simplified overview of the application of renormalization methods to the theory of turbulence. In the interests of completeness, the first part has three further chapters which contain the basic equations and relationships which are needed for the rest of the book. Part Two deals with phen ...

Keywords: homogeneous, isotropic turbulence, closure approximations, renormalized perturbation theory, renormalization group, turbulence phenomenology, HIT
