Applied Mathematics Seminars: Random reflections on tracer turbulence

Presented by Djoko Wirosoetisno, Duhram university

9 November 2018 15:00 in CM301

We review the Kolmogorov-Kraichnan spectra of turbulence in three and two dimensions, as well as the mathematical attempts to derive them from the Navier-Stokes equations. We then consider the simpler problem of deriving analogous spectra for passive tracers governed by advection-diffusion equations. This is largely work in progress with Mike Jolly (Indiana University).
