This book isbased on a one-term course in fluid mechanics originally taught in the Department of Mathematics of the University of California, Berkeley, during the spring of 1978. The goal of the course was not to provide an exhaustive account of fluid mechanics, nor to assess the engineering value of various approximation procedures. The goals were: • to present some of the basic ideas of fluid mechanics in amathematically attractive manner (which does not mean “fully rigorous”); • 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. This third edition has incorporated a number of updatesand revisions, but the spirit and scope of the original book are unaltered. The book is divided into three chapters. The first chapter contains an elementary derivation of the equations; the concept of vorticity is introduced at an early stage. The second chapter contains a discussion of potential flow, vortex motion, and boundary layers. A construction of boundary layers using vortex sheets andrandom walks is presented. The third chapter contains an analysis of one-dimensional gas flow from a mildly modern point of view. Weak solutions, Riemann problems, Glimm’s scheme, and combustion waves are discussed. The style is informal and no attempt is made to hide the authors’ biases and personal interests. Moreover, references are limited and are by no



means exhaustive. Welist below some general references that have been useful for us and some that contain fairly extensive bibliographies. References relevant to specific points are made directly in the text.
