Abstract: Rayleigh–Taylor (RT) turbulence in different situations (Newtonian andnon-Newtonian) is analyzed in terms of numerical simulations we carried out in the last decade after the seminal paper by Chertkov (2003) [6]. Our focus will be both on theoretical aspects, mainly related to the issue of universality and anomalous scaling of relevant statistical observables, and on possible ways to passively control the growth of the (turbulent) mixing layer and its mixing efficiency. Finally, the role of rotation on the statistical structure of the mixing layer will be also discussed in relation to recent numerical simulations.
