This book collects peer-reviewed lectures of the IUTAM Symposium on the 100th anniversary of Boundary Layer research. No other reference of this calibre, on this topic, is likely to be published for the next decade. Covers classification, definition and mathematics of boundary layers; instability of boundary layers and transition; boundary layers control; turbulent boundary layers; numerical treatment and boundary layer modelling; special effects in boundary layers.

From the reviews:
"The authors of the papers in this volume are leading contributors to the field and provide a mix of large-scale computation, theory, and experiment. In keeping with the commemorative nature of the meeting, several papers provide useful and interesting historical perspectives on developments related to the boundary layer. ... Clearly, this volume provides a valuable report on the current status of one of the most important concepts in fluid mechanics." (Paul A. Libby, AIAA Journal, Vol. 45 (9), 2007)
