**The Secret of Sailing**

by Johan Hoffman, Johan Jansson, Claes Johnson

2009**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.

**The Secret of Flight**

by

**Johan Hoffman, Johan Jansson, Claes Johnson**

A theory of subsonic flight based on a combination of analysis and computation. We uncover a mechanism for the generation of substantial lift at the expense of small drag of a wing, which is fundamentally different from the classical theories.
