This book provides an introduction to turbulence in vortex systems, and to turbulence theory for incompressible flow described

in terms of the vorticity field. It is the author's hope that by the end of the book the reader will believe that these subjects are

identical, and constitute a special case of fairly standard statistical mechanics, with both equilibrium and non-equilibrium

aspects. The author's main goal is to relate turbulence to statistical mechanics. The book is organized as follows: ..
