Special Seminar: “Sixty years of quantum turbulence”

William Vinen, University of Birmingham
Monday, March 25, 2019 - 4:00pm

Turbulence in a superfluid, where it is strongly affected by the quantization of circulation
and by two-fluid effects, was first recognized as an interesting theoretical possibility in the
1950s. At the same time, but independently, experiments were pointing in the same
direction. An account of these early studies will be followed by a personal view of
subsequent developments, which have led to increasing interest in a field of turbulence that
poses many challenging problems, both experimentally and theoretically.
