An Informal Introduction to Theoretical Fluid Mechanics

Front Cover
Sir James Lighthill is one of the world's leading authorities on the subject of fluid dynamics. In this book he draws on his extensive teaching experience to produce an informal introduction to theoretical fluid mechanics for undergraduate mathematicians or engineers. The book will initiate students into the creative use of data from experimental studies and theoretical analyses to generate practically useful mathematical models (including manageable computer models) of a broad range of important fluid flows.
