100 years of turbulent cascades

June 26.- July 7., 2023


  This two-week summer school aims to provide modern viewpoints on the concept of cascades, a key notion formalized by Lewis F. Richardson a century ago. Mornings will be devoted to minicourse delivered by lecturers from the mathematics and the physics community. In the afternoons, participants will be offered to work in small groups on original research projects supervised by guest and local researchers.
