We study diffusion and mixing in different fluid dynamics models, mainly related to incompressible flows. In this setting, mixing is a purely advective effect which causes a transfer of energy to high frequency. In turn, mixing acts to enhance the dissipative forces, giving rise to what we refer to as enhanced dissipation: this can be understood by the identification of a time-scale faster than the purely diffusive one. We will give a general overview on the subject, and present a few specific applications that include passive scalar evolution in both planar and radial settings, fractional diffusion, linearized two-dimensional Navier-Stokes equations, and even simple examples in kinetic theory.
