The purpose of this book is to present a broad panorama of model problems encountered in nonviscous Newtonian fluid flows. This is achieved by investigating the significant features of the solutions of the corresponding equations using the method of asymptotic analysis. The book thereby fills a long-standing gap in the literature by providing researchers working on applied topics in hydro-aerodynamics, acoustics and geophysical fluid flows with exact results, without having to invoke the complex mathematical apparatus necessary to obtain those insights. The benefit of this approach is two-fold: outlining the idea of the mathematical proofs involved suggests methodologies and algorithms for numerical computation, and also often gives useful information regarding the qualitative behaviour of the solutions. This book is aimed at researchers and students alike as it also provides all the necessary basic knowledge about fluid dynamics.

From the reviews of the first edition: "Researchers in fluid dynamics and applied mathematics will enjoy this book for its breadth of coverage, hands-on treatment of important ideas, many references, and historical and philosophical remarks." (MATHEMATICAL REVIEWS, 2003g) "[...] presents a broad panorama of model problems encountered in nonviscous Newtonian fluid flows." (International Aerospace Abstracts 42/3, 2002) "This well-organized book can be recommended to students, teachers and researchers with an interest in asymptotic methods and rigorous foundations of nonviscous fluid mechanics." (Zentralblatt MATH, 992/17, 2002) "This book touches on a number of topics in fluid mechanics at an advanced level. ! I believe the book could be a welcome addition to the bookshelf of anyone working in theoretical fluid mechanics. It would also be a valuable supplemental text for a post-master course in fluid mechanics." (Anthony Leonard, Journal of Fluid Mechanics, Vol. 517, 2004)
