"Fluid Dynamics: Theory, Computation, and Numerical Simulation extends the classical field of fluid dynamics into the realm of scientific computing in a way that is both comprehensive and accessible to the beginner. The theory of fluid dynamics, and the implementation of solution procedures into numerical algorithms, are discussed handinhand and with reference to computer programming." "This book serves as an introductory course in fluid mechanics, covering traditional topics in a way that unifies theory, computation, computer programming, and numerical simulation. Few prerequisites are required. The audience includes not only advanced undergraduate and entrylevel graduate students, but also a broad class of scientists and engineers with a general interest in scientific computing." "This text is for practitioners and students in all fields of engineering, computational physics, scientific computing, and applied mathematics. It can be used as a text in both undergraduate and graduate courses in fluid mechanics, aerodynamics, and computational fluid dynamics."
