by Johan Hoffman, Claes Johnson

**Publisher**: Springer 2007**ISBN/ASIN**: 3540465316**ISBN-13**: 9783540465317**Number of pages**: 415

**Description**:

In this book we address mathematical modeling of turbulent fluid flow, and its many mysteries that have haunted scientist over the centuries; such as the dAlembert mystery of drag in an inviscid flow, the Sommerfeld mystery of transition to turbulence in shear flow, and the Loschmidt mystery of violation of the 2nd law of thermodynamics.
