Abstract

Fluid turbulence is of considerable importance both fundamentally, as a paradigm for all nonlinear systems with many degrees of freedom, and in applications. In recent years there has been considerable effort to take advantage of some unique properties of low temperature liquid and gaseous helium. In particular, studies of turbulent thermal convection in conventional fluids have been aided by the use of low temperature helium which principally allows the limit of large Reynolds and Rayleigh numbers to be attained under controlled conditions. We discuss some directions and recent progress in these studies.
