Abstract : The use of polynomial functionals of the white noise process is discussed, for the treatment of nonlinear random processes. It is noted that such treatments are useful for nearly-Gaussian processes. Applications of such representations to nonlinear systems and to nonlinear fluid mechanics problems (turbulence) are reviewed. (Author)
