 About the Book 

Turbulence and convection are phenomena the existence of which has haunted astrophysicists because they pose such extremely difficult problems. The papers in this volume are taken from a conference held in February 1999 which brought together representatives of four different viewpoints: the computational physicists numerical three-dimensional large-eddy simulations- theorists, who wish to simplify the equations into approximate, but useful one-dimensional recipes- astrophysicists, who see turbulence and convection as a subroutine- and experimentalists, who provide insights into what really happens at molecular levels in space - and keep everyone else honest.
