There is no dearth of texts on inviscid flows, so any new contribution must distinguish itself from the pack. The author chooses to do this by presenting, in his view, a modern approach to key problems in nonviscous fluid flow. The book treats a variety of fluids applications from an applied mathematics as opposed to theoretical or high-level mathematical perspective. Much of the abstract nature and mathematical rigor of presenting hypotheses and proving theorems is avoided, and the focus is on the nuts and bolts of various techniques to solve problems.
The first three chapters are devoted to general fluid models and...
