Texts in Applied Mathematics #4: A Mathematical Introduction to Fluid Mechanics Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A presentation of some of the basic ideas of fluid mechanics in a mathematically attractive manner. The text illustrates the physical background and motivation for some constructions used in recent mathematical and numerical work on the Navier- Stokes equations and on hyperbolic systems, so as to interest students in this at once beautiful and difficult subject. This third edition incorporates a number of updates and revisions, while retaining the spirit and scope of the original book.

Book News Annotation:

A textbook for a one-term upper level or graduate course, presenting the basic ideas of fluid mechanics in a mathematically attractive, rather than fully rigorous, manner, and explaining some of the physics behind the constructions. A primary goal is to inspire, as well as to prepare, students for further study. Updated and revised from the 1990 edition; first published in 1979.
