Nielsen BookDataPhilip Ball explores the elusive rules that govern flow in nature - from the swirl of a wisp of smoke and eddies in rivers, to the huge persistent storm that is the Great Spot on Jupiter. Whether the movement of wind, water, sand, or flocks of birds, he explains the science of the extraordinary forms and patterns that emerge.
Bertrams Buyer's Notes:Explains the mechanisms at play when things flow, describing phenomena such as turbulence, which still defies scientific understanding, the principles of symmetry-breaking, and how chaotic behaviour emerges in systems.
