Symmetries of Turbulence

Abstract: I will briefly review what is known about broken and emerging statistical symmetries of the turbulence state. I will particularly discuss unexpected recent findings on conformal invariance in turbulence and the relation between isolines in 2d turbulent flows and the Schramm-Loewner evolution.
