By James E. Pringle,Andrew King

just about all traditional subject within the Universe is fluid, and fluid dynamics performs an important position in astrophysics. This graduate textbook, first released in 2007, offers a simple figuring out of the fluid dynamical tactics proper to astrophysics. the math used to explain those methods is simplified to convey out the underlying physics. The authors disguise many subject matters, together with wave propagation, shocks, round flows, stellar oscillations, the instabilities because of results reminiscent of magnetic fields, thermal using, gravity, shear flows, and the fundamental strategies of compressible fluid dynamics and magnetohydrodynamics. The authors are administrators of the united kingdom Astrophysical Fluids Facility (UKAFF) on the college of Leicester, and editors of the Cambridge Astrophysics sequence. This publication has been built from a path in astrophysical fluid dynamics taught on the collage of Cambridge. it truly is compatible for graduate scholars in astrophysics, physics and utilized arithmetic, and calls for just a uncomplicated familiarity with fluid dynamics.
