In this paper, we briefly overview some theoretical approaches and empirical modeling approaches of the nonlinear Rayleigh-Taylor instabilities, which have been developed over recent decades, summarize the results of the group theory analysis of the nonlinear coherent dynamics in Rayleigh-Taylor and Richtmyer-Meshkov flows, consider the issues of validation and verification of the theories and models, and outline some criteria for the estimate of the fidelity and information capacity of the experimental and numerical data sets.
