A central problem of theoretical physics is the construction of a theory of turbulence. This book is the outcome of our continued efforts to solve this problem. The aim of this book is to present several major ideas, which we shall outline in this Introduction.


Kinetic Equation Incompressible Fluid Stationary Spectrum Turbulence Spectrum Strong Turbulence
