Abstract : The monograph focuses on the mathematical tools available for describing and solving problems relating to stochastic vector fields. The book has applicability beyond problems relating to turbulence, although its orientation arises from these problems. The mathematical level rests between that customarily observed in books for physicists and that for mathematicians. The employment of generalized functions helps to resolve many of the mathematical questions in a relatively simple way. The extensive appendices on the subject, as well as on Fourier transforms, tensors, and invariant theory, are significant in making the book mathematically self-contained. (Author)
