Onsager and the theory of hydrodynamic turbulence

Gregory L. Eyink and Katepalli R. Sreenivasan

Besides Osager's well-known contributions to physics and chemistry, he had a lifelong interest and made ground-breaking discoveries in the subject of hydrodynamic turbulence. His 1949 paper stimulated considerable later work, but it is in his private letters and unpublished notes that some of the most original ideas appeared. In at least four cases, the theories were developed and published only decades later by others.
