The first hep-th paper today is called
Migdal's loop variables and various solutions to their equations are players in their derivations and various "2/3"-th powers of the volume etc. are generated as the results. Quite interesting.
The AdS/CFT correspondence has been used to analyze gauge theories, heavy ions, condensed matter systems, cold atoms, and superconductivity in terms of gravity in a higher-dimensional spacetime. And it's just way too natural to add turbulence into this list.
