Includes bibliographical references (pages [245]-247) and index.

Vector fields -- Euler's equations -- The Navier-Stokes equations -- Ideal fluid flows -- Viscous flows -- Shocks -- Boundary layers -- Instabilities -- Integrable models -- Hamiltonian systems based on a lie algebra -- Curvature and instability -- Singularities -- Spectral methods -- Finite difference methods -- Geometric integrators

This book emphasizes general principles of physics illustrated by simple examples in fluid mechanics. Advanced mathematics (e.g., Riemannian geometry and Lie groups) commonly used in other parts of theoretical physics (e.g. General Relativity or High Energy Physics) are explained and applied to Fluid Mechanics.
