Publisher: arXiv
Number of pages: 40

Description:
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.
