9780198596790: Elementary Fluid Dynamics (Oxford Applied Mathematics and Computing Science Series)

The study of fluid dynamics is a central theme in modern applied mathematics. It is used to model a vast range of physical phenomena and plays a vital role in science and engineering. This textbook provides a clear introduction to both the theory and application of fluid dynamics that is suitable for all undergraduates coming to the subject for the first time. Students need only a basic knowledge of vector calculus, complex analysis, and simple methods of solving differential equations. Numerous exercises (with hints and answers) illustrate the main ideas and serve to organize the reader's understanding. The wide range of topics discussed include inviscid and viscous flows, waves in fluids, boundary layer flow, and instability in flows, along with historical information and many references to important experiments. This is a comprehensive and absorbing introduction to the mathematical study of fluid behavior.

About the Author:

D. J. Acheson is at Jesus College, Oxford.

Review:

`Much recent research is incorporated. This makes the book interesting to read,.... the writing is clear and careful, anticipating students' difficulties.'

`I feel confident that it will be deservedly successful.' Times Higher Education Supplement

`in this excellent mathematical undergraduate text, the author has managed to discuss the major topics in inviscid and viscous fluid dynamics.' MATHEMATIKA

'a comprehensive and absorbing introduction to the mathematical study of fluid behaviour'
Physics Briefs 1991

`Throughout, the author demonstrates his awareness of the relevance of his material, and conveys his enthusiasm for it. His book has its own particular flavour, contains a wealth of information, and is mathematically secure. It can be confidently recommended.' Journal of Fluid
Mechanics

'a very readable book and the authors attractive style makes it an enjoyable exercise'
Professor N. C. Freeman (University of Newcastle), Contemporary Physics, Volume 32, Number 2, March/April 1991

'The book is aimed at applied mathematicians, physicists, and engineers, but is carefully and clearly written and could cheerfully grace the shelves of any pure mathematician interested in the real world.' New Scientist

`Throughout he lovingly describes experiments and presents drawings of the results.'

`Acheson's voice is almost conversational. He includes many good exercises (with hints and answers in the back).'

`I really find this a very attractive book and am happy to recommend it for a first graduate course in fluid mechanics.' Physics Today
