Fluid flow and electromagnetic fields, from viewpoint of theoretical physics -- Is the Navier-Stokes Equation sufficient to describe turbulence at very high Reynolds numbers? -- (JAPANESE)
[ 講演概要 ]
There exists analogy between the fluid flow and electromagnetic fields with respect to their mathematical representations. This is reasonable because both are continuous physical fields having energy and momentum in space-time. In particular, fluid’s vorticity is analogous to magnetic field.

On the other hand, for simulation of atmospheric global motion on the giant computer Earth Simulator, many empirical physical parameters must be introduced in order to obtain realistic results for weather prediction, etc. This implies that the present system of equations of fluid flows may not be sufficient to describe fluid motions of large scales at very high Reynolds numbers. We consider whether the above-mentioned analogy is useful for improvement of the theory of turbulence at very high Reynolds numbers.
