This lesson covers the spectral method used in turbulence, a fundamental concept in fluid dynamics. It explains how to simulate hydrodynamic flow and compute energy transfer. The lesson also discusses the advantages and disadvantages of various methods such as finite difference, finite volume, finite elements, and vortex method, with a focus on the spectral method. It further elaborates on how to compute fluxes, the concept of Fourier transform, and the importance of energy transfer in different scales. The lesson also introduces the concept of Kolmogorov theory and explains how to solve equations in spectral space. Towards the end, it introduces the TARANG code developed for solving general PDE spectral problems.

- The spectral method captures scale by scale flows or flows at different scales.
- Fourier transform allows capturing the amplitude of the flow at different scales.
- The spectral method requires very idealized geometry and is not suitable for all types of flows.
- The method of collocation is used in the spectral method.
- The energy transfer from one Fourier mode to another is crucial in the spectral method.
