« Physique de la turbulence : des tourbillons aux ondes »
CNRS Éditions, EDP Sciences collection « Savoirs Actuels », 34 euros. Sébastien Galtier (prochainement en librairie)


Since Reynolds’ first historical experiment on liquids in 1883, our understanding of turbulence has expanded considerably thanks to theoretical, numerical, experimental and observational advances. From the flow of a river to astrophysical plasmas, from airplane wings to gravitational waves, turbulence is involved in many physical systems. This book aims to introduce the reader to the fundamental principles that govern the physics of turbulence.

Strong vortex turbulence and weak wave turbulence are the two regimes we encounter in nature. Since the focus of fluid mechanics is on hydrodynamics, it is usually the first regime that is treated. However, physicists are interested in much more diverse systems where waves are often present. The originality of this book is to treat, in equal parts, strong turbulence and wave turbulence.

This book provides a broad overview of turbulence that should allow beginning researchers to acquire a basic knowledge of topics at the forefront of current research. Its content is based in part on a course taught in the Master 2 « Plasma Physics and Fusion » (IP Paris, Université Paris-Saclay, Sorbonne University).
