This book is written for researchers as well as engineers in an industrial environment. Following a longstanding tradition of the Les Houches Summer Schools, all chapters are pedagogically presented and accessible for graduate students. The book treats 2D and 3D turbulence from the experimental, theoretical and computational points of view. The reader will find, for example, comprehensive accounts of fully developed turbulence experiments, simulating deterministically coherent vortices formation, and statistical prediction of industrial flows, and a very complete review of 2D turbulence. Fundamental concepts like topological fluid dynamics in MHD flows or finite-time singularities of the Burgers, Euler and Navier--Stokes equations complete the volume.

From the contents: The Century of Turbulence Theory: The Main Achievements and Unsolved Problems
Measures of Anisotropy and the Universal Properties of Turbulence
Large-Eddy Simulations of Turbulence
Statistical Turbulence Modelling for the Computation of Physically Complex Flows
Computational Aeroacoustics
The Topology of Turbulence
Two-Dimensional Turbulence
