This book is designed for a first graduate course in fluid dynamics. It focuses on knowledge and methods that find applications in most branches of fluid mechanics, and aims to supply a theoretical understanding that will permit sensible simplifications to be made in the formulation of problems and enable the reader to develop analytical models of practical significance. The study of simplified model problems can be used to guide experimental and numerical investigations. The first part (Chapter 1-4) is concerned entirely with the incompressible flow of homogeneous fluid. Chapters 5 and 6 deal with dispersive waves and acoustics.

This book is ideal as a graduate textbook and reference for the advanced learner in fluid mechanics. The first four chapters are concerned with incompressible flow of homogeneous fluids. Chapters five and six deal with dispersive waves and acoustics. Learning is supported by numerous examples, end-of-chapter exercises, and illustrations.About the Author:
M. S. Howe has been Professor in the Department of Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering at Boston University since 1992. He is a Fellow of the Institute of Acoustics (UK) and of the Acoustical Society of America. He was appointed American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) Rayleigh Lecturer for 1997 for his 'pioneering contributions to the science and applications of acoustics'. He received the ASME 2000 Per Bruel Gold Medal for Noise Control and Acoustics 'for important work on the interactions of fluid flow and structures, leading to an increased understanding of acoustic radiation generated from such interactions'. In 2001 he received the Aeroacoustics Award of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, for 'outstanding theoretical contributions to the understanding of the fundamental physical processes of noise generation in aeroacoustics'. Dr Howe is the author of Acoustics of Fluid-Structure Interactions (CUP 1998), Theory of Vortex Sound (in press, 2001), and has publishedmore than 180 papers in refereed Mathematics and Engineering journals.
