A compact, moderately general book which encompasses many fluid models of current interest...The book is written very clearly and contains a large number of exercises and their solutions. The level of mathematics is that commonly taught to undergraduates in mathematics departments..

-Mathematical Reviews

The book should be useful for graduates and researchers not only in applied mathematics and mechanical engineering but also in advanced materials science and technology...Each public scientific library as well as hydrodynamics hand libraries should own this timeless book...Everyone who decides to buy this book can be sure to have bought a classic of science and the heritage of an outstanding scientist.

-Silikaty

All applied mathematicians, mechanical engineers, aerospace engineers, and engineering mechanics graduates and researchers will find the book an essential reading resource for fluids.

MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews:

"The writing style is quintessential Truesdellania: purely mathematical, breathtaking, irrepressible, irreverent, uncompromising, taking no prisoners... The book is filled with historical nuggets... Its pure, exact mathematics will baptize, enlighten and exhilarate." (Applied Mechanics Review)

"The authors have backgrounds which are ideally suited for writing this book. The late C. Truesdell is well known for his monumental treatises on continuum thermomechanics. K. R. Rajagopal has made many important contributions to the mechanics of continua in general, and to nonlinear fluids in particular. They have produced a compact, moderately general book which encompasses many fluid models of current interest. ... This is an excellent book which is highly recommended to students and researchers in fluid mechanics." (Mathematical Reviews)
