Additional Notes

The theory of continuous matter, with a strong focus on fluid mechanics.  Topics include (but may not be limited to) the continuum approximation, dimensional analysis, stress and strain tensors, linear and isotropic elasticity, the Euler and Navier-Stokes equations, conservation laws in fluids, vorticity, potential flows, and water waves.
