By Sergey Nazarenko

Wave Turbulence refers back to the statistical conception of weakly nonlinear dispersive waves. there's a vast and starting to be spectrum of actual functions, starting from sea waves, to plasma waves, to superfluid turbulence, to nonlinear optics and Bose-Einstein condensates. past the basics the booklet therefore additionally covers new advancements resembling the interplay of random waves with coherent buildings (vortices, solitons, wave breaks), inverse cascades resulting in condensation and the transitions among susceptible and powerful turbulence, turbulence intermittency in addition to finite approach dimension results, comparable to “frozen” turbulence, discrete wave resonances and avalanche-type strength cascades.

This e-book is an outgrow of a number of lectures classes held via the writer and, accordingly, written and established really as a graduate textual content than a monograph, with many workouts and strategies provided alongside the way in which. the current compact description essentially addresses scholars and non-specialist researchers wishing to go into and paintings during this field.
