Physics and Mathematics of Turbulent Flows at Different Scales

February 24, 2019 - March 1, 2019
The school will bring together experts in physics, mathematics, and (geo)physical fluids. We wish to attract participants with a background in mathematics and physics leading them towards open problems in geophysical fluid dynamics. The presence of rotation and stratification makes the understanding of geophysical turbulence extremely hard, the existence of multiple scales of motions makes direct numerical modelling not entirely feasible. New ideas from statistical mechanics and dynamical systems theory are needed to improve our ability to perform prediction in a deterministic and statistical sense. The lectures will focus on advances on the mathematics and physics of fluid flows at different scales. Four main streams of activities will be explored, based on the paradigm of deterministic chaotic systems, stochastic dynamics, theory of turbulence, and statistical mechanics. The lectures will cover simultaneously theoretical analytic advances in these areas as well as computational techniques.
