Two Problems in the Statistical Theory of Turbulence

Two problems in the theory of turbulence are studied by the use of analogy with other areas in theoretical physics. Firstly the problem of determining the probability that a turbulent distribution has a particular velocity U at a point. It is shown that there is an analogy between this problem and a polymer problem, and this reasoning leads to a distribution exp (- for large U. The second problem is that of the existence of large fluctuations, the intermittency problem. Here the analogy is with
