The present work studies the isotropic and homogeneous turbulence for incompressible fluids through a specific Lyapunov analysis. The analysis consists in the calculation of the velocity fluctuation through the Lyapunov theory applied to the local deformation using the Navier-Stokes equations, and in the study of the mechanism of energy cascade through the finite scale Lyapunov analysis of the relative motion between two particles. The analysis provides an explanation for the mechanism of energy cascade, leads to the closure of the von Karman-Howarth equation, and describes the statistics of the velocity difference. Several tests and numerical results are presented.
