Simple vortices – these tubular swirling vortical constructions with targeted vorticity generally saw in several types of turbulent flows – play key roles in turbulence dynamics (e.g. enhancement of combining, diffusion and resistance) and signify turbulence records (e.g. intermittency). as a result of their dynamical value, manipulation of effortless vortices is anticipated to be powerful and priceless in turbulence keep watch over in addition to in building of turbulence modeling. the main complex examine works on trouble-free vortices and similar difficulties have been awarded and mentioned on the IUTAM Symposium in Kyoto, Japan, 26-28 October 2004. This booklet comprises forty contributions offered there, the topics of which conceal vortex dynamics, coherent buildings, chaotic advection and combining, statistical houses of turbulence, rotating and stratified turbulence, instability and transition, dynamics of skinny vortices, finite-time singularity, and superfluid turbulence. The e-book may be valuable for readers of graduate and complex degrees within the box of fluid turbulence.
