Non-Linear dynamics and statistical theories for basic geophysical flows

Andrew J. Majda, Xiaoming Wang

Research output: Book/ReportBook


This introduction to the important interplay between nonlinear dynamics and statistical theories for geophysical flows is designed for a multi-disciplinary audience ranging from graduate students to senior researchers. Novel applications of information theory are utilized to simplify, unify, and compare the equilibrium statistical theories. Topics and related background concepts are introduced and developed through elementary examples and discussion throughout the text as they arise. No previous background in geophysical flows is needed to read the text.
