  • Provides a very broad coverage of topics relevant to homogeneous and multi-component reactive turbulent gas and gas-dust flows
  • Shows the utilization of stochastic and irreversible thermodynamics approaches to the in-depth study of chaotic and ordered processes in the developed turbulence
  • Offers many comprehensive illustrations and applications of the revealed processes to the modeling of natural phenomena in astro- and geophysics
  • Presents a very detailed analysis of numerous problems of turbulent flows applied to the natural environment and conditions in outer space

This book focuses on the development of continuum models of natural turbulent media. It provides a theoretical approach to the solutions of different problems related to the formation, structure and evolution of astrophysical and geophysical objects. A stochastic modeling approach is used in the mathematical treatment of these problems, which reflects self-organization processes in open dissipative systems. The authors also consider examples of ordering for various objects in space throughout their evolutionary processes.

This volume is aimed at graduate students and researchers in the fields of mechanics, astrophysics, geophysics, planetary and space science.
