Wave Interactions and Fluid Flows is a coherent, up-to-date and comprehensive account of theory and experiment on wave-interaction phenomena, both in fluids at rest and in shear flows. On the one hand, this includes water waves, internal waves, their evolution and interaction and associated wave-driven mean flows; on the other, phenomena of nonlinear hydrodynamic stability, especially those leading to the onset of turbulence. Close similarities - and crucial differences - exist between these two classes of phenomena and their treatment in this single study provides a particularly valuable bridge between more specialised, but related, disciplines. As a result, this unique book will appeal to researchers and graduate students of fluid mechanics in its widest sense, including the study of wave-interaction phenomena in such diverse fields as meteorology, aeronautical and hydraulic engineering, optics, solar physics and population dynamics. Dr Craik is an active researcher of long-standing at the University of St Andrews and has wide experience in the field of fluid mechanics.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'The theme that the author has adopted for his monograph, as reflected in its title, has enabled him to draw together, in a coherent and successful manner, a large amount of material that spans a range of, perhaps not obviously related, fluid-dynamical phenomena.' Contemporary Physics
'I enjoyed reading this book; the discussion of the topics that I am familiar with served as a refreshing, integrated review; the rest of the discussion outlines the important developments and gives enough references to get someone started who is seriously interested in exploring the subject in more detail.' Science
"...a worthy addition to the Cambridge series on mechanics and applied mathematics...a useful reference." American Meteorological Society
