Stars are filled with sound. Turbulent convection within a star makes a broadband hum, but certain frequencies get amplified because they are resonant. For example, the Sun’s surface throbs and rings under the combined influence of several million resonant acoustic modes. Thus, stars act like really bad-sounding musical instruments. Helioseismology...

Condensate, fluctuations and symmetries — a tale of 2D turbulence Earth's jet streams, Jupiters Great Red Spot and its zonal winds are all examples of persistent large scale flows, whose dynamics is to a good approximation two-dimensional. These flows are also highly turbulent, and the interaction between the turbulence and...
