The goal of this text is to present some of the basic ideas of fluid mechanics in a mathematically attractive manner, to present the physical background and motivation for some constructions that have been used in recent mathematical and numerical work on the Navier- Stokes equations and on hyperbolic systems, and to interest some of the students in this beautiful and difficult subject. The third edition has incorporated a number of updates and revisions, but the spirit and scope of the original book are unaltered.

From the reviews:

"... The book contains some of the basic ideas of fluid mechanics in a mathematically attractive manner...has the very advantage of providing the solution of the differential equations using the new and modern techniques...the material is very well presented both the mathematical arguments as well as the physical input." Physicalia
