We report on some implications of the theory of turbulence developed by V. Yakhot [V. Yakhot, Phys. Rev. E 57(2) (1998)]. In particular we focus on the expression for the scaling exponents ζn. We show that Yakhot’s result contains three well known scaling models as special cases, namely K41, K62 and the theory by V. L’vov and I. Procaccia [V. L’vov & I. Procaccia, Phys. Rev. E 62(6) (2000)]. The model furthermore yields a theoretical justification for the method of extended self–similarity (ESS).
