**Radiative Gas Dynamics**

by David Weinberg

**Publisher**: Ohio State University 2007

**Description**:

This course is a graduate-level introduction to gas dynamical processes in astrophysics. Its goal is to teach you the basic concepts and equations of gas dynamics (a.k.a. fluid dynamics or hydrodynamics) and to illustrate the application of gas dynamics to astrophysics.
