This is a reissue of Professor Batchelor's text on the theory of
turbulent motion, which was first published by Cambridge Unviersity
Press in 1953. It continues to be widely referred to in the
professional literature of fluid mechanics, but has not been
available for several years. This classic account includes an
introduction to the study of homogeneous turbulence, including its
mathematic representation and kinematics. Linear problems, such as
the randomly-perturbed harmonic oscillator and turbulent flow
through a wire gauze, are then treated. The author also presents
the general dynamics of decay, universal equilibrium theory, and
the decay of energy-containing eddies. There is a renewed interest
in turbulent motion, which finds applications in atmospheric
physics, fluid mechanics, astrophysics, and planetary science.
