**An Introduction to Theoretical Fluid Dynamics**

by Stephen Childress

**Publisher**: New York University 2008**Number of pages**: 177

**Description**:

This course will deal with a mathematical idealization of common fluids such as air or water. The main idealization is embodied in the notion of a continuum and our 'fluids' will generally be identified with a certain connected set of points in RN, where we will consider dimension N to be 1, 2, or 3.
