We provide a summary of the known analytical properties of the Alpha models, including an outline of their derivation and the associated assumptions, their simplification for the case of constant dispersion length (alpha) and their conservation properties. We also offer interpretations of nonlinear dynamics of the viscous alpha models and indicate the differences one might expect from the dynamics of the Navier-Stokes equations.
