A Treatise on Hydrodynamics with Numerous Examples, Volume 2
MetadataShow full item record
Classic text, well in the line of Lamb’s hydrodynamics, which offer a clear and methodical introduction of the mathematical theory of fluid flows.The present work is divided into two volumes, the first of which deals with the theory of the motion of frictionless liquids, up to and including the theory of the motion of solid bodies in a liquid. In the second volume, a considerable portion of which is already written, it is proposed to discuss the theory of rectilinear and circular vortices ; the motion of a liquid ellipsoid under the influence of its own attraction, including Professor G. H. Darwin’s important memoir on dumb-bell figures of equilibrium; the theories of liquid waves and tides; and the theory of the motion of a viscous liquid and of solid bodies therein.
