Turbulence and Scaling in Solid State Physics
Since the early days of this century, we have learned to regard the departure of condensed matter from deterministic behavior as resulting from the interactions between many degrees of freedom. As the examples of Brownian motion and Johnson noise show , it is possible to invert the whole process and to use fluctuation phenomena as a kind of spectroscopy for the study of the many-body problem.
