About the Authors
  • This book is designed for a first graduate course in fluid dynamics. It focuses on knowledge and methods that find applications in most branches of fluid mechanics, and aims to supply a theoretical understanding that will permit sensible simplifications to be made in the formulation of problems and enable the reader to develop analytical models of practical significance. The study of simplified model problems can be used to guide experimental and numerical investigations. The first part (Chapter 1-4) is concerned entirely with the incompressible flow of homogeneous fluid. Chapters 5 and 6 deal with dispersive waves and acoustics.

    • Provides a detailed study of a wide range of highly simplified 'model problems'
    • Helps the reader to formulate and develop analytical models of practical significance
    • Covers the incompressible flow of a homogeneous fluid, the theory of dispersive waves and an introduction to acoustics

    Reviews & endorsements

    "It would make an excellent graduate level text...I found it to be clearly written...remarkably free of errors and contains many well thought out problems and interesting examples...I was impressed by the large number of practical results that could be obtained by using only very simple mathematics."

    "Professor Howe is not only a well-established researcher but also an excellent pedagogue. He succeeded in explaining in a comprehensive manner complex topics of hydrodynamics...This book has all the chances to become a classical textbook on this subject...recommended to all students willing to discover the wonderful world of hydrodynamics."
