The Secret of Sailing
by Johan Hoffman, Johan Jansson, Claes Johnson
Number of pages: 175
In this book we present a mathematical theory of sailing based on a combination of analysis and computation. This new theory is fundamentally different from that envisioned in the classical theories by Kutta-Zhukovsky for lift in inviscid flow and by Prandtl for drag in viscous flow.

The work aims at the extraction of principles of flight from, and the illustration of the use of, detailed information on aeronautics now available from many sources. The subject of aerodynamics is almost wholly based on experiment.

The book for graduate students and researchers at the cutting edge of investigations into the fundamental nature of multiphase flows. It is intended as a reference book for the basic methods used in the treatment of multiphase flows.

Many organisms move through water or air in order to survive and reproduce. It is useful to analyze fluid motion as a collection of vortices: vortices interact with the moving organism, interact with each other, and evolve independently in time.
