Fluctuations and entropy driven space--time intermittency in Navier--Stokes fluids

Abstract

We present a review of the chaotic hypothesis and discuss its applications to intermittency in statistical mechanics and fluid mechanics proposing a quantitative definition. Entropy creation rate is interpreted in terms of certain intermittency phenomena. An attempt to a theory of the experiment of Ciliberto--Laroche on the fluctuation law is presented.
