About the Authors
  • With applications ranging from modelling the environment to automotive design and physiology to astrophysics, conventional textbooks cannot hope to give students much information on what topics in fluid dynamics are currently being researched, or how to choose between them. This book rectifies matters. It consists of eleven chapters that introduce and review different branches of the subject for graduate-level courses, or for specialists seeking introductions to other areas. Hb ISBN (2001): 0-521-78061-6

    • Now available in paperback
    • Each chapter by an established authority on the subject
    • Gives insights into current research that are not to be found in other textbooks

    Reviews & endorsements

    "Researchers in all areas of fluid mechanics can be introduced painlessly, gently, and fruitfully to newer areas. The book is a joy to read for those who already know fluid mechanics." Applied Mechanics Reviews

    "This book seeks to go beyond conventional textbooks, in presenting a range of topics currently being researched and how graduate students can make a choice among them." Mechanical Engineering
