The Equations of Radiation Hydrodynamics
Graduate-level text examines propagation of thermal radiation through a fluid and its effects on the hydrodynamics of fluid motion. Topics include approximate formulations of radiative transfer and relativistic effects of fluid motion; microscopic physics associated with the equation of transfer; inverse Compton scattering; and hydrodynamic description of fluid. 1973 edition.
