Out-of-equilibrium systems vs. Classical equilibrium systems

Degrees of freedom:

Statistical approach of turbulence:

Steady states, equation of state, distributions

- 2D: Robert and Sommeria 91’, Chavanis 03’
- Quasi-2D: shallow water, β-plane Bouchet 02’’
- 3D: still unanswered question (vortex stretching)
Axisymmetric flows: intermediate situation

- 2D and vortex stretching
- Theoretical developments by Leprovost, Dubrulle and Chavanis 05’

- Statistical equilibrium state of 2D Euler equation (Chavanis):
- Classification of isolated vortices: monopoles and dipoles
- Stability diagram of these structures:
dependence on a single control parameter

- Quasi 2D statistical mechanics (Bouchet):
- Intense jets
- Great Red Spot

- Basic equation: Euler equation
- Forcing is neglected
- Viscosity is neglected

- Variable of interest:
Probability to observe the conserved quantity at

- Maximization of a mixing entropy at conserved quantities constraints

Statistical description (1)

- Mixing occurs at smaller and smaller scales
More and more degrees of freedom

- Meta-equilibrium at a coarse-grained scale
Use of coarse-grained fields

- Coarse-graining affects some constraints
Casimirs are fragile invariant
