Book description

Hydrodynamic stability is of fundamental importance in fluid mechanics and is concerned with the problem of transition from laminar to turbulent flow. Drazin and Reid emphasise throughout the ideas involved, the physical mechanisms, the methods used, and the results obtained, and, wherever possible, relate the theory to both experimental and numerical results. A distinctive feature of the book is the large number of problems it contains. These problems not only provide exercises for students but also provide many additional results in a concise form. This new edition of this celebrated introduction differs principally by the inclusion of detailed solutions for those exercises, and by the addition of a Foreword by Professor J. W. Miles.

Reviews

‘The work is undeniably of high scholarship, consummate accuracy and penetrating insight … All specialists in stability theory will be happy that two such authorities have found the time, and spared so few pains, to produce a work of such excellence.’

Source: Nature

‘… continues to be … essential reading in hydrodynamic stability, in particular for the novice. … detailed solutions to many problems [are] given at the end of each section.‘
