This quantity includes the papers offered on the IUTAM Symposium on Geometry and statistics of Turbulence, held in November 1999, on the Shonan overseas Village middle, Hayama (Kanagawa-ken), Japan. The Symposium used to be proposed in 1996, aiming at organizing concen trated discussions on present knowing of fluid turbulence with empha sis at the facts and the underlying geometric constructions. the choice of the overall meeting of overseas Union of Theoretical and utilized Mechanics (IUTAM) to just accept the suggestion used to be greeted with enthusiasm. Turbulence is usually characterised as having the homes of combining, inter mittency, non-Gaussian statistics, and so forth. curiosity is becoming lately in how those houses are on the topic of formation and evolution of struc tures. be aware that the intermittency is intended for passive scalars in addition to for turbulence pace or cost of dissipation. there have been eighty-eight members within the Symposium. They got here from 13 international locations, and fifty-seven papers have been provided. The presenta tions comprised a wide selection of basic matters of arithmetic, statistical analyses, actual types in addition to engineering functions. one of the matters mentioned are (a) measure of self-similarity in cascade, (b) Fine-scale buildings and measure of Markovian estate in turbulence, (c) Dynamics of vorticity and charges of pressure, (d) records linked to vortex constructions, (e) Topology, buildings and facts of passive scalar advection, (f) Partial differential equations governing PDFs of speed in crements, (g) Thermal turbulences, (h) Channel and pipe move turbulences, and others.
