From bernoulli scaling to turbulent diffusion

M. F. Shlesinger, B. J. West, J. Klafter

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The scaling found in Bernoulli's St. Petersburg Paradox was perhaps not properly understood until Levy's theory of probability limit distributions with infinite integer moments was developed. We use a generalization of these ideas involving a non-local stochastic equation with a coupled space-time memory to formulate a picture of turbulent diffusion.
