The research goal is to develop new mathematical tools that open the theory of turbulence up to theoretical investigations. Great strides are currently being made both in turbulence experiments and simulations but the new mathematical development will allow theoreticians to compare with both simulations and experiments and make new predictions useful to both areas.

These developments will eventually have a big effect on technology permitting improvements in aircraft and car design, more efficient travel in and out of space, less pollution, more fuel efficiency and greater efficiency of wind turbines and wave energy farms.
