Although not really advanced, this book assumes some knowledge of elementary fluid mechanics. It treats the subject mathematically—generally requiring a second course in calculus. The first chapter derives the basic equations. Subsequent chapters are: Similitude and Modeling, Potential Flow (Fundamentals), Potential Flow (Free Surfaces), Inertialess Flow, Laminar Flow, Turbulent Flow, Shallow Water Flow, Circulation, Waves, and Transport. The Appendix explains Cartesian tensors, which are used throughout the book.
