**Introduction to Statistical Theory of Fluid Turbulence**

by Mahendra K. Verma

**Publisher**: arXiv 2005**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.
