9780521292337: Waves in Fluids

A comprehensive textbook in which the author describes the science of waves in liquids and gases. Drawing on a subject of enormous extent and variety, he provides his readers with a thorough analysis of the most important and representative types of waves including sound waves, shock waves, water waves of all kinds, and the so-called internal waves (inside atmospheres and oceans) due to intensity stratification. Emphasis throughout is on the most generally useful fundamental ideas of wave science, including the principles of how waves interact with flows. This standard work on one of the great subdivisions of the dynamics of fluids, is lucidly written and will be invaluable to engineers, physicists, geophysicists, applied mathematicians or any research worker concerned with wave motions or fluid flows. It is especially suitable as a textbook for courses at the final-year undergraduate or graduate level.

Review:

'All students of fluid mechanics admire the author as an outstandingly successful contributor and expositor. The present book is an excellent example of his powers and will be especially appreciated by new converts to the field. Not only will they be able to learn the basic ideas of wave motions but also how to marry mathematics and physics in a mutually beneficial way; and they can hone their technique on the large number of sensible and realistic examples included in the text.'
