A Mathematical Introduction to Fluid Mechanics (3rd Edition) by Alexandre J. Chorin, Jerrold E. Marsden

By Alexandre J. Chorin, Jerrold E. Marsden

The target of this article is to offer a few of the uncomplicated principles of fluid mechanics in a mathematically beautiful demeanour, to offer the actual heritage and motivation for a few structures which were utilized in fresh mathematical and numerical paintings at the Navier-Stokes equations and on hyperbolic structures and to curiosity the various scholars during this appealing and tough topic. The 3rd variation has included a couple of updates and revisions, however the spirit and scope of the unique booklet are unaltered.
