Turbulence theory is one of the most intriguing parts of fluid mechanics and many outstanding scientists have tried to apply their knowledge to the development of the theory and to offer useful recommendations for the solution of some practical problems. In this monograph the author attempts to integrate many specific approaches into the unified theory.
