This book gives an excellent introduction to fluid dynamics many interesting and important photographs of fluid flows are included in order to help the students who do not have an opportunity of observing flow phenomena in a laboratory The book also contains exercises at the end of each chapter In comparison with many currently available books, I find this book by Batchelor especially stimulating and useful for students of applied mathematics and engineering L Debnath, Zentralblatt MATH a must read for a proper understanding of the subject ResonanceFirst published in , Professor Batchelor s classic text on fluid dynamics is still one of the foremost texts in the subject The careful presentation of the underlying theories of fluids is still timely and applicable, even in these days of almost limitless computer power This re issue should ensure that a new generation of graduate students see the elegance of Professor Batchelor s presentation
