Official Description

A first course in fluid mechanics aimed at graduate students in physics. No previous knowledge of the subject is assumed. Topics include: inviscid fluids, vorticity, surface waves, the Navier-Stokes equations, Newtonian and non-Newtonian fluids, Stokes flow, drag, boundary layers, stability and instability, Rayleigh-Benard convection.

We'll draw on fluid mechanics found in aerodynamics, plasma physics, astrophysics, and atmospheric physics.
