Editorial Reviews
From the Publisher
"It would make an excellent graduate level text...I found it to be clearly written...remarkably free of errors and contains many well thought out problems and interesting examples...I was impressed by the large number of practical results that could be obtained by using only very simple mathematics."Marvin Goldstein, Chief Scientist
NASA Glenn Research Center, Cleveland, OH 441353191, USA
Journal of Sound and Vibration
Volume 309, Issues 12, 8 January 2008, Pages 347348
"Professor Howe is not only a wellestablished researcher but also an excellent pedagogue. He succeeded in explaining in a comprehensive manner complex topics of hydrodynamics...This book has all the chances to become a classical textbook on this subject...recommended to all students willing to discover the wonderful world of hydrodynamics."
