Summer School Convenor: Dr. Michael Shats (email@example.com)
The Workshop will be followed by the Turbulence Summer School (16-20 January)
The aim of the workshop will be to examine current developments in our understanding of the dynamics and statistical dynamics of turbulence and coherent structures. Theoretical, numerical modelling, observational and experimental studies of turbulence and coherent structures in quasi-two-dimensional geophysical flows, such as oceans and atmospheres, and in plasmas and in three-dimensional flows, such as the turbulent boundary layer, will be presented. It will include studies on the emergence of coherent structures and their interactions with chaotic or turbulent eddies.
The workshop will cover topics ranging from bifurcation and singularity theory, to instability theory and stochastic modelling, through chaos and predictability, turbulence, coherent structures, multiple equilibria and hysteresis, subgrid-scale processes to statistical dynamics and renormalization. It is expected that many of the methodologies presented may also be applicable to other Complex Systems.
