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 withdoi:10.1143/ptps.69.1 fatcat:7v5xa7w7kjh63fz6dqtdx54vye
