The extended symmetry of the functional of length determined in an affine space K-3 of the correlation vectors for homogeneous isotropic turbulence is studied. The two-point velocity-correlation tensor field (parametrized by the time variable t) of the velocity fluctuations is used to equip this space by a family of the pseudo-Riemannian metrics dl(2) (t) (Grebenev and Oberlack (2011)). First, we observe the results obtained by Grebenev and Oberlack (2011) and Grebenev et al. (2012) about a geometry of the correlation space K-3 and expose the Lie algebra associated with the equivalence transformation of the above-mentioned functional for the quadratic form dl(D2)(2) (t) generated by dl(2) (t) which is similar to the Lie algebra constructed by Grebenev et al. (2012). Then, using the properties of this Lie algebra, we show that there exists a nontrivial central extension wherein the central charge is defined by the same bilinear skew-symmetric form.. as for the Witt algebra which measures the number of internal degrees of freedom of the system. For the applications in turbulence, as the main result, we establish the asymptotic expansion of the transversal correlation function for large correlation distances in the frame of dl(D2)(2) (t).
