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.

Students can ask questions during the lectures by writing in the “chat" window or by using their microphone. A camera is not necessary for lectures. Tutorials will be delivered online synchronously at the scheduled times. It is recommended that students have a microphone and a camera to participate in tutorials.
