Invariant manifold theory links dynamical systems theory and turbulence phenomena. These research notes develop a theory for the Navier-Stokes equations in bounded and certain unbounded geometries. The treatment is suitable for graduate students and scientists studying chaos and turbulence theory. Contains a lot of useful information, including much that cannot be found in the standard texts ... well worth the reader's attention. - MathSciNet. AUTHOR: Sivaguru S.
