**Fundamentals of Compressible Fluid Mechanics**

by Genick Barâ€“Meir

2008**Number of pages**: 376

**Description**:

This book describes the fundamentals of compressible flow phenomena for engineers and others. It is designed to replace the books or instructor's notes for the compressible flow in undergraduate classes for engineering/science students. The book could be used as a reference book for people who have at least some knowledge of the basics of fundamental fluid mechanics, and basic science such as calculus, physics, etc.

**Some Open Questions in Hydrodynamics**

by

**Mateusz Dyndal, Laurent Schoeffel**-

**arXiv**

There are many deep open questions that come with the theory of fluid mechanics. We discuss some of them that we classify in two categories, the long term behavior of solutions of equations of hydrodynamics and the definition of initial conditions.
