The crux of turbulence theory is the well-known closure problem. This central and still unresolved issue of turbulence prevents reliable predictions even on global flow behavior. This monograph introduces promising mathematical tools to shed new light on this problem and to enable the generation of simple and workable constructions and solutions for turbulent applications. Large sections of the book feature the turbulence dissipation process, the mechanism that controls growth of the energy and its transfer from large towards small-scale motions, demonstrating the great potential of the presented two-point correlation technique.

From the reviews:

"This small book from the Springer Complexity series lives up to the series subtitle and surpasses its name. ... It is dense with concepts, references, and equations. The book will be a valuable resource for those who choose to make a research career in turbulence ... ." (Richard H. Lyon, International Journal of Acoustics and Vibration, Vol. 11 (3), 2006)
