Promotional Information

Fluid flow turbulence is a phenomenon of great importance in many fields of engineering and science.


"This small book is a gem that should be widely appreciated...It is clean, useful, and almost elegant in its confident approach to the subject." Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society " easy to read introduction to turbulence, instabilities and transitions...successfully reviews a large class of nonlinear phenomena in fluids (solitons, deterministic chaos, transitions, fully developed turbulence) without many technical details...provides a good bibliography...very valuable in that it rapidly provides a good fundamental background to engineers who have to cope with realistic problems in fluids." P. L. Sulem, Mathematical Reviews
