This is the first of four volumes which cover essential areas of fluid mechanics in an admirable breadth and depth. The series is ideally suited for MSc students reading Mathematics, Engineering, or Physics as well as PhD students. Established researchers in the field will also benefit from the precision and clarity achieved by the authors, which among others provides the reader and here is some similarity with the Theoretical Physics series by Landau & Lifshitz with a glimpse into the Russian school of fluid dynamics. (Alfred Kluwick, Institute of Fluid Mechanics and Heat Transfer, TU Wien)
This reviewer finds the book to be a desirable addition to the existing textbooks. (S. C. Rajvanshi, Zentralblatt MATH)
