Turbulence as Statistics of Vortex Cells
Sasha Migdal, New York University
The loop equations in turbulence are reviewed, both theory and comparison with numerical experiments and some physical experiments as well. We propose the model of 3D Turbulent statistics as String Theory on the phase boundaries of the 3D Ising model. Both mathematical justification from the Euler and Helmholtz equations and the resulting physical properties are discussed, time permitting.
