Description:

Hydrodynamic stability is of fundamental importance in fluid mechanics and is concerned with the problem of transition from laminar to turbulent flow. This book begins with a basic introduction to three major areas of the subject: thermal convection, rotating and curved flows, and parallel shear flows. There follows a comprehensive account of recent advances in the mathematical theory for parallel shear flows. A number of applications of the linear theory are discussed, including the effects of stratification and unsteadiness. The book concludes with a chapter describing some of the fundamental ideas involved in current work on nonlinear hydrodynamic stability. The emphasis throughout is on…
