This graduate-level text incorporates these advances in a comprehensive treatment of the fundamental principles of combustion physics. The presentation emphasises analytical proficiency and physical insight, with the former achieved through complete, though abbreviated, derivations at different levels of rigor, and the latter through physical interpretations of analytical solutions, experimental observations, and computational simulations. Exercises are mostly derivative in nature in order to further strengthen the student's mastery of the theory. Implications of the fundamental knowledge gained herein on practical phenomena are discussed whenever appropriate. These distinguishing features provide a solid foundation for an academic program in combustion science and engineering.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Combustion Physics is an excellent text that is comprehensive in coverage, rigorous yet expeditious in the analytical developments, insightful in the physical descriptions, and above all, very readable. It is not only an invaluable reference for combustion researchers, but its emphasis on clarity and logical presentation makes it particularly attractive for classroom adoption for a graduate course on combustion in aerospace, mechanical, or chemical engineering and the physical sciences ... The author is to be congratulated for having made this valuable, lasting contribution to combustion literature and education.' AIAA Journal
