Mathematics for the Fluid Earth The problem of hydrodynamic turbulence is reformulated as a heat flow problem along a chain of mechanical systems which describe units of fluid of smaller and smaller spatial extent. These units are macroscopic but have few degrees of freedom, and can be studied by the methods of (microscopic) non-equilibrium statistical mechanics. The fluctuations predicted by statistical mechanics correspond to the intermittency observed in turbulent flows. Specifically, we obtain the formula $$ zeta_p={pover3}-{1overlnkappa}lnGamma({pover3}+1) $$ for the exponents of the structure functions ($langle|Delta_rv| This talk is part of the Isaac Newton Institute Seminar Series series. ## This talk is included in these lists:- All CMS events
