200 hundred years of Navier-Stokes and turbulences
Location: Les Houches School of Physics
Turbulent flows are ubiquitous around us, and their understanding is of primary importance not only to address fundamental flow dynamics but also to tackle important challenges as meteorological, geophysical, environmental and climate predictions as well as novel engineering designs. The Navier-Stokes equations governing turbulent flows have been known since 1823 but their combined non-linearity and non-locality makes it one of the most complex in physics, coupling phenomena at macrosopic scales where mechanical energy driving the flows is typically injected down to the molecular scales where it is dissipated by viscosity. This complexity makes it still a very active field of research. The aim of this school is to provide high level lectures, covering the fundamental aspects of Navier-Stokes Turbulence, including the most innovative modeling and numerical strategies as well as the many connections bridging Navier-Stokes Turbulence to other fields in physics such as statistical thermodynamics, active matter, quantum physics, etc..
