In science:

In the case of developed turbulence with different scales of pulsations it is reasonable to introduce the characteristic Reynolds number: R   v tur p / tur where: v tur is the velocity of pulsation and  tur  / tur characteristic kinematic viscosity in turbulence conditions.
Hierarchic Models of Turbulence, Superfluidity and Superconductivity
Large-scale pulsations correspond to high  p values and low  tur values. i.e. high characteristic turbulence Reynolds numbers (see 21).

Let k be a commutative ring, then we define the bicategory Tur(k) as follows.
Galois theory in bicategories
F : Bim(k) → Tur(k) is defined by F (A) = A on 0–cells, F (M ) = ({∗}, M ) on 1–cells.
Galois theory in bicategories
Their interpretation in the Turaev bicategory lead to the notion of ‘group entwining structures’ as introduced in . A comonad in Tur(k) coincides with the notion of a group-coring as defined in the recent paper .
