Abstract:

Markoffs method of random flights is reconsidered and developed with the intention of applying it to problems of turbulent flow. The gist is to generalize the assumption regarding the probability distribution of casual events. 1 Correlations which may exist among casual events, and the consequences appearing in the resultant events are considered. In view of the conclusion, some of the previous authors treatments are criticized. 2 The correlation probability between two resultant events which are separated in space but caused by a common group of causal events is formulated. 3 The correlation probability between two events separated in time but caused by the same group of casual events evolving in time is formulated.
