Turbulence by Uriel Frisch
Book DescriptionThis textbook presents a modern account of turbulence, one of the greatest challenges in physics. The state-of-the-art is put into historical perspective five centuries after the first studies of Leonardo and half a century after the first attempt by A. N. Kolmogorov to predict the properties of flow at very high Reynolds numbers. Such 'fully developed turbulence' is ubiquitous in both cosmical and natural environments, in engineering applications and in everyday life. The intended readership for the book ranges from first-year graduate students in mathematics, physics, astrophysics, geosciences and engineering, to professional scientists and engineers. Elementary presentations of dynamical systems ideas, of probabilistic methods (including the theory of large deviations) and of fractal geometry make this a self-contained textbook.

Hydrodynamic Instability and Transition to Turbulence, Hardback (December 2012)
This book examines the considerable advances in recent years in the theory of laminar-flow instability and transition to turbulence. Collects new material on instability to finite-amplitude disturbances, much of which was available only in research papers.
