This is an advanced textbook on the subject of turbulence, and is suitable for engineers, physical scientists and applied mathematicians. The aim of the book is to bridge the gap between the elementary, heuristic accounts of turbulence to be found in undergraduate texts, and the more rigorous, if daunting, accounts given in the many monographs on the subject. Throughout, the book combines the maximum of physical insight with the minimum of mathematical detail.
Chapters 1 to 5 may be appropriate as background material for an advanced undergraduate or introductory postgraduate course on turbulence, while chapters 6 to 10 may be suitable as background material
for an advanced postgraduate course on turbulence, or act as a reference source for professional researchers.
