Nonequilibrium statistical mechanics for stationary turbulent dispersion

  title={Nonequilibrium statistical mechanics for stationary turbulent dispersion},
  author={Yuanran Zhu},
We propose a unified framework to study the turbulent transport problem from the perspective of nonequilibrium statistical mechanics. By combining Krarichnan’s turbulence thermalization assumption and Ruelle’s recent work on nonequilibrium statistical mechanics settings for fluids, we show that the equation for viscous fluid can be viewed as the non-canonical Hamiltonian system perturbed by different thermostats. This allows an analogy between the viscous fluid and the nonequilibrium heat… Expand

The formula for the exponents of the structure functions is obtained, meaning of the adjustable parameter κ is that when an eddy of size r has decayed to eddies of size , their energies have a thermal distribution. Expand
Dynamical ensembles in stationary states
We propose, as a generalization of an idea of Ruelle's to describe turbulent fluid flow, a chaotic hypothesis for reversible dissipative many-particle systems in nonequilibrium stationary states inExpand
Eulerian and Lagrangian renormalization in turbulence theory
Systematic renormalized perturbation expansions for turbulence and turbulent convection are constructed which are invariant at each order under random Galilean transformations. Two types of expansionExpand

Energy transport equations are derived directly from full molecular dynamics models as coarse-grained description. With the local energy chosen as the coarse-grained variables, we apply theExpand
Thermal conduction in classical low-dimensional lattices
Abstract Deriving macroscopic phenomenological laws of irreversible thermodynamics from simple microscopic models is one of the tasks of non-equilibrium statistical mechanics. We consider stationaryExpand

In this paper we consider both analytically and numerically several finite-dimensional approximations for the inviscid Burgers-Hopf equation. Fourier Galerkin truncation is introduced and studied asExpand
Smooth Dynamics and New Theoretical Ideas in Nonequilibrium Statistical Mechanics
This paper reviews various applications of the theory of smooth dynamical systems to conceptual problems of nonequilibrium statistical mecanics. We adopt a new point of view which has emergedExpand
Classification of robust isolated vortices in two-dimensional hydrodynamics
We determine solutions of the Euler equation representing isolated vortices (monopoles, dipoles) in an infinite domain, for arbitrary values of energy, circulation, angular momentum and impulse. AExpand

The linear response theory of systems obeying Fokker-Planck equations is discussed under the assumption that the principle of detailed balance is satisfied. This theory is used to obtainExpand
