Part of the Lecture Notes in Physics book series (LNP, volume 218)


For the time being only preliminary experiments have been performed. It is therefore difficult to reach definite conclusions. We are now doing a systematic survey of different cases : inviscid statistical equilibria, decaying and forced turbulence, with different resolutions, parameters and initial conditions.
