Turbulence in Fluids and Plasmas
When confronted with turbulence, many physicists tend to have two thoughts. First: It is a very important unsolved problem. Second: It is a bit mystical. Both reactions motivated me to organize a series of six tutorial talks in September 2005. Each presentation was given by a postdoc or Ph.D. student actively involved in some aspect of plasma turbulence research.
