Despite being around for over a century, the transition to turbulence problem remains central in fluid dynamics. This phenomenon was apparently known to Leonardo da Vinci [15], who in 1507 introduced the term " la turbulenza " , and nowadays it has an impact on practically every field ranging from astrophysics and atmosphere dynamics to nuclear reactors and oil pipelines. Beginning with the systematic experimental studies in a pipe by Osborne Reynolds [1] in the 1880s, it is known that the flow… CONTINUE READING
