This book presents 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 for lift in inviscid flow and for drag in viscous flow.

In writing this book, while preserving the usual rigour, the endeavour has been made to impart to it by the character of the illustrations and examples, a modern and practical flavour which will render it more widely useful. The calculus is not used.

Fluid and plasma flows exhibit complex random behaviour, called turbulence. This text is a brief introduction to the statistical theory of fluid turbulence, with emphasis on field-theoretic treatment of renormalized viscosity and energy fluxes.

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.
