Introductory Fluid Mechanics for Physicists and Mathematicians. Edition No. 1

  • ID: 2330359
  • Book
  • April 2013
  • 488 Pages
  • John Wiley and Sons Ltd

This textbook presents essential methodology for physicists of the theory and applications of fluid mechanics within a single volume.  Building steadily through a syllabus, it will be relevant to almost all undergraduate physics degrees which include an option on hydrodynamics, or a course in which hydrodynamics figures prominently.
