Turbulence is often referred to as the last open problem of classical mechanics. It is a problem of both fundamental importance, posing unique mathematical challenges, and with a wide range of applications, in earth and atmospheric science, plasma physics, aerospace engineering, and many other areas. Despite nearly a century of efforts by the best minds, many questions remain open, and considerable progress has only been achieved for some idealized situations, such as homogeneous and isotropic turbulence. The goal of the session is to bring together specialists from various areas of turbulence research.
