Summary:The book serves as a core text for graduate courses in advanced fluid mechanics and applied science. It consists of two parts. The first provides an introduction and general theory of fully developed turbulence, where treatment of turbulence is based on the linear functional equation derived by E. Hopf governing the characteristic functional that determines the statistical properties of a turbulent flow. In this section, Professor Kollmann explains how the theory is built on divergence free Schauder bases for the phase space of the turbulent flow and the space of argument vector fields for the characteristic functional. Subsequent chapters are devoted to mapping methods, homogeneous turbulence based upon the hypotheses of Kolmogorov and Onsager, intermittency, structural features of turbulent shear flows and their recognition. Outlines fundamental difficulties and presents several approaches for their analysis and solution; Emphasizes mathematical treatment of turbulent flows and methods for their computation; Reinforces concepts presented with problems to illustrate the theory and to introduce particular examples of turbulent flows such as periodic pipe flow; Includes several versions of the Hopf equation derived in spatial/Eulerian and material/Lagrangean description.
