The combustion of fossil fuels remains a key technology for the foreseeable future. It is therefore important that we understand the mechanisms of combustion and, in particular, the role of turbulence within this process. Combustion always takes place within a turbulent flow field for two reasons: turbulence increases the mixing process and enhances combustion, but at the same time combustion releases heat which generates flow instability through buoyancy, thus enhancing the transition to turbulence. The four chapters of this book present a thorough introduction to the field of turbulent combustion. After an overview of modeling approaches, the three remaining chapters consider the three distinct cases of premixed, non-premixed, and partially premixed combustion, respectively. This book will be of value to researchers and students of engineering and applied mathematics by demonstrating the current theories of turbulent combustion within a unified presentation of the field.

'It is a major new work of scholarship in an important area. This book does present a unified description based on clearly stated premises and I recommend anyone with a serious research interest in turbulent combustion to read it.' K. N. C. Bray, Journal of Fluid Mechanics
'Peters is unarguably one of the premier scholars in this field, and his book is a welcomed addition to the literature ... the book is very up-to-date, with discussions of the very latest models and experiments and, in several places, new results presented ... a nice balance of mathematics, theory, modelling and experimental data. ... I highly recommend the monograph to people interested in the field of turbulent combustion; this should become a standard reference book on the subject.' James J. Riley, Journal of Turbulence
'... an essential book for all turbulent combustion experts who want an up-to-date summary of the works of N. Peters and his numerous co-workers.' Thierry Poinsot, European Journal of Mech. B Fluids
'... a valuable addition to the literature, and essential reading for serious students of the field, old and new alike.' St. B. Pope, ZAMM
'... this reviewer believes that Turbulent Combustion will probably be counted among the most significant steps of progress in turbulence ... It will serve as a thorough, ready, and reliable reference for all combustion experts and modelers.' A. M. Kanury, Applied Mechanical Review
'... this book is well written and is an important contribution to combustion literature ... the book contains a comprehensive review of the current literature on turbulent combustion. It is clearly a 'must have' for experience combustion modellers and experimentalists.' Markus Kraft, Measurement Science & Technology
