An Eulerian-Lagrangian approach to incompressible fluids that is convenient for both analysis and physics is presented. Bounds on burning rates in combustion and heat transfer in convection are discussed, as well as results concerning spectra. 
Vorticity dynamics and turbulence models for Large-Eddy Simulations
We consider in this paper the problem of finding appropriate models for Large Eddy Simulations of turbulent incompressible flows from a mathematical point of view. The Smagorinsky model is analyzed
Stability of an efficient Navier-Stokes solver with Navier boundary condition
In this paper, we study the stability of an efficient numerical scheme based on pressure separation for the Navier-Stokes equations with Navier slip boundary condition in a bounded domain with
Divergent Expansion , Borel Summability and 3-D Navier-Stokes Equation
We describe how Borel summability of divergent asymptotic expansion can be expanded and applied to nonlinear partial differential equations (PDEs). While Borel summation does not apply for
Numerical Approximation of Statistical Solutions of Scalar Conservation Laws
Efficient numerical algorithms for approximating statistical solutions of scalar conservation laws combine finite volume spatio-temporal approximations with Monte Carlo and multi-level Monte Carlo discretizations of the probability space are proposed.

Developments in turbulence research: a review based on the 1999 Programme of the Isaac Newton Institute, Cambridge
Recent research is making progress in framing more precisely the basic dynamical and statistical questions about turbulence and in answering them. It is helping both to define the likely limits to


Geometric Statistics in Turbulence
The author presents results concerning scaling exponents in turbulence and estimates the average dissipation rate, the average dimension of level sets, and a class of two-dimensional equations that are useful models of incompressible dynamics.
Remarks on the breakdown of smooth solutions for the 3-D Euler equations
The authors prove that the maximum norm of the vorticity controls the breakdown of smooth solutions of the 3-D Euler equations. In other words, if a solution of the Euler equations is initially
Vorticity and vortex dynamics in complex turbulent flows
Some of the basic principles of vortex dynamics arc reviewed in this paper and applied to calculating and understanding various kinds of turbulent flows. After setting out the basic equations and

A variational principle for upper bounds on the largest possible time averaged convective heat flux is derived from the Boussinesq equations of motion, from which nonlinear Euler-Lagrange equations for the optimal background fields are derived.
Infinite Prandtl Number Convection
We prove an inequality of the type N≤CR1/3(1+log+R)2/3 for the Nusselt number N in terms of the Rayleigh number R for the equations describing three-dimensional Rayleigh–Bénard convection in the

Upper bounds for the heat flux through a horizontally infinite layer of fluid heated from below are obtained by maximizing the heat flux subject to (a) two integral constraints, the ‘power
Some open issues in premixed turbulent combustion
The widely studied subject of premixed turbulent combustion is discussed, with particular attention to identification and review of controversial and unresolved fundamental issues having practical
Mathematical Principles of Classical Fluid Mechanics
Classical fluid mechanics is a branch of continuum mechanics; that is, it proceeds on the assumption that a fluid is practically continuous and homogeneous in structure. The fundamental property
Bulk Burning Rate in¶Passive–Reactive Diffusion
AbstractWe consider a passive scalar that is advected by a prescribed mean zero divergence-free velocity field, diffuses, and reacts according to a KPP-type nonlinear reaction. We introduce a
