Summary on Grant Application Form
Turbulence is an important player in weather and climate systems; it greatly affects aviation and sea navigation, causes formation of protogalactic magnetic fields and affects plasma confinement in thermonuclear devices. It is important and widespread, and yet its description remains the greatest challenge for scientists, with only a few exact results obtained over the years. On the other hand, turbulence is an exciting and active subject; the proposed symposium will consolidate effort in solving its challenging problems, by encouraging the exchange of ideas, collaboration among the leading experts in the field and transfer of knowledge by these experts to junior scientists and postgraduate students.We propose a symposium in Turbulence, aiming to report on recent progress, and to advance research in the following turbulence-related areas: Singularity in Navier-Stokes and Euler fluids, Intermittency, Coherent structures, Statistical Waves, MHD, Environmental and Geophysical flows, Numerical methods in turbulence, Transition to turbulence in open flows.Turbulence is a multi-disciplinary subject. But the approaches of mathematicians,. physicists and engineers are often quite diverse, reflecting historical developments in each of these subjects. One of the main goals of the proposed symposium will be to promote a mutually beneficial interaction among the researchers in turbulence with different disciplinary backgrounds. The proposed symposium will be held in the academic year 2005-2006 at the University of Warwick Mathematics Research Centre (MRC). The backbone of the symposium will consist of a series of thematically interconnected workshops. The workshops will be complemented by a year-long active seminar series and visitor programme including a small number of long-term collaboration visits, by instructional courses and by a summer school calculated to maximize the benefit to junior researchers and postgraduate students. We will encourage an exchange of ideas and collaboration among mathematicians, physicists and engineers involved in the research in turbulence, and seek to involve industrial specialists.
