This book describes methods that reveal its structures and dynamics. Building on the existence of coherent structures recurrent patterns in turbulent flows, it describes mathematical methods that reduce the governing (Navier Stokes) equations to simpler forms that can be understood more easily. This second edition contains a new chapter on the balanced proper orthogonal decomposition: a method derived from control theory that is especially useful for flows equipped with sensors and actuators. It also reviews relevant work carried out since 1995. The book is ideal for engineering, physical science and mathematics researchers working in fluid dynamics and other areas in which coherent patterns emerge.
