Abstract : A brief summary of the work done at Yale in the collaborative research program between Yale, Princeton and Penn State is given. One of the findings of the work is that there is a second-order 'transition' between the low-Reynolds-number boundary layer and the high Reynolds-number boundary layer. The nature of this transition and the elucidation of this mechanism is one of the topics of this research. Other aspects concern the self-similar scaling aspects of the Reynolds shear stress, scaling of the probability density of velocity increments and the scaling of the multiplier distributions for the energy dissipation.
