About this book

The book deals with the development of continual models of turbulent natural media. Such models serve as a ground for the statement and numerical evaluation of the key problems of the structure and evolution of the numerous astrophysical and geophysical objects. The processes of ordering (self-organization) in an originally chaotic turbulent medium are addressed and treated in detail with the use of irreversible thermodynamics and stochastic dynamics approaches which underlie the respective models. Different examples of ordering set up in the natural environment and outer space are brought and thoroughly discussed, the main focus being given to the protoplanetary discs formation and evolution.

Reviews

From the reviews:

 “It should be of interest to students and specialists in applied mathematics and mechanics. The book is devoted to the problem of self-organisation in fully developed turbulent flows using stochastic thermodynamic constructions to treat complex reacting multicomponent gas and gas dust media.” (Mark Thompson, Mathematical Reviews, January, 2014)
