N2 - This paper has two objectives. First, we prove the existence of solutions to the general advection-diffusion equation subject to a reasonably smooth initial condition. We investigate the behavior of the solution of these problems for large values of time. Secondly, a numerical scheme using the Sinc-Galerkin method is developed to approximate the solution of a simple model of turbulence, which is a special case of the advection-diffusion equation, known as Burgers' equation. The approximate solution is shown to converge to the exact solution at an exponential rate. A numerical example is given to illustrate the accuracy of the method.
