This booklet is an advent to the multidisciplinary box of anomalous diffusion in complicated structures, with emphasis at the scaling technique in place of strategies in keeping with the quantitative research of underlying delivery equations. standard examples of such structures are turbulent plasmas, convective rolls, zonal stream platforms and stochastic magnetic fields. From the extra methodological perspective, the technique is determined by the overall use of correlations estimates, quasilinear equations and non-stop time random stroll suggestions. but, the mathematical descriptions should not intended to turn into a set set of recipes yet really strengthen and boost the reader's actual instinct and figuring out at the underlying mechanisms concerned. many of the fabric stems from class-tested lectures, the place graduate scholars the place assumed to have a operating wisdom of classical physics, fluid dynamics and plasma physics yet differently no past wisdom of the subject material is thought from the aspect of the reader.
