This Introduction summarizes and provides a perspective on the papers representing one of the key themes of the ‘Turbulent mixing and beyond’ programme—the hydrodynamic instabilities of the Rayleigh–Taylor (RT) and Richtmyer–Meshkov (RM) type and their applications in nature and technology. The collection is intended to present the reader a balanced overview of the theoretical, experimental and numerical studies of the subject and to assess what is firm in our knowledge of the RT and RM turbulent mixing.
