An Introduction to Fluid Dynamics

Front Cover
Cambridge University Press, Feb 28, 2000 - Mathematics - 615 pages
First published in 1967, Professor Batchelor's classic text on fluid dynamics is still one of the foremost texts in the subject. The careful presentation of the underlying theories of fluids is still timely and applicable, even in these days of almost limitless computer power. This re-issue should ensure that a new generation of graduate students see the elegance of Professor Batchelor's presentation.
