Mini-Symposium on:

"Filtered Density Function (FDF) Methods for Turbulent Reactive Flows"

The popularity of the filtered density function (FDF) has been steadily growing since its original conception in the 1990s. Within the past 3-5 years, there has been a much sharper increase in the number of investigators who have contributed to its further improvements and applications. As a result, the methodology has been used extensively for large eddy simulation (LES) of a variety of reactive flows. Thus we feel it is timely to devote a mini-symposium to this methodology.
