Description

Turbulence is a state of a nonlinear system in which energy is distributed over many degrees of freedom, in a fashion which strongly deviates from equilibrium, exhibiting chaos in both space and time. Understanding turbulence is of immense theoretical and practical importance. In this symposium we explore some of the recent connections between turbulence and the tools and problems in high energy physics: turbulent cascades in heavy ion collisions, mutual information in turbulence, and string theory and vortex sheets.
