Fluid and plasma flows exhibit complex random behaviour at high Reynolds numbers; this phenomena is called turbulence. This text is a brief introduction to the statistical theory of fluid turbulence, with emphasis on field-theoretic treatment of renormalized viscosity and energy fluxes.

The work aims at the extraction of principles of flight from, and the illustration of the use of, detailed information on aeronautics now available from many sources. The subject of aerodynamics is almost wholly based on experiment.

This book presents a mathematical theory of sailing based on a combination of analysis and computation. This new theory is fundamentally different from that envisioned in the classical theories for lift in inviscid flow and for drag in viscous flow.

Many organisms move through water or air in order to survive and reproduce. It is useful to analyze fluid motion as a collection of vortices: vortices interact with the moving organism, interact with each other, and evolve independently in time.
