This book is primarily intended to enable postgraduate research students to enhance their understanding and expertise in Fluid Mechanics and Magnetohydrodynamics (MHD), subjects no longer treated in isolation. The exercises throughout the book often serve to provide additional and quite significant knowledge or to develop selected mathematical skills, and may also fill in certain details or enhance readers' understanding of essential concepts. A previous background or some preliminary reading in either of the two core subjects would be advantageous, and prior knowledge of multivariate calculus and differential equations is expected.

"The authors broach a wide range of topics in fluid mechanics and magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) including basic theory, wave propagation, shock wave theory, singular perturbation and boundary layer theory, magnetohydrostatics and MHD stability. ... this excellent book seems to fully meet the intention of the authors of enabling graduate research studies of fluid mechanics and MHD to enhance their understanding and expertise in the area." (Mark Thompson, Mathematical Reviews, June, 2017)
"This book is intended for the use of postgraduate research students. The main purpose is to enhance the understanding of this double research subject, which is in continuous development. ... it is remarkable that the concept of fluid (and magnetofluid) is treated to cover both the domains of rarefied and dense plasmas." (Ivan Abonyi, zbMATH 1332.76001, 2016)
