    Courant Lecture Notes
    Volume: 192009; 201 pp
    MSC: Primary 76;

    This book gives an overview of classical topics in fluid dynamics, focusing on the kinematics and dynamics of incompressible inviscid and Newtonian viscous fluids, but also including some material on compressible flow. The topics are chosen to illustrate the mathematical methods of classical fluid dynamics. The book is intended to prepare the reader for more advanced topics of current research interest.

    Titles in this series are co-published with the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences at New York University.

    Readership

    Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in fluid mechanics.
