The Secret of Sailing

Number of pages: 175

Description:
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.
