520    This book grew out of the need to provide students with a 
       solid introduction to modern fluid dynamics. It offers a 
       broad grounding in the underlying principles and 
       techniques used, with some emphasis on applications in 
       astrophysics and planetary science. The book 
       comprehensively covers recent developments, methods and 
       techniques, including, for example, new ideas on 
       transitions to turbulence (via transiently growing stable 
       linear modes), new approaches to turbulence (which remains
       the enigma of fluid dynamics), and the use of asymptotic 
       approximation methods, which can give analytical or semi-
       analytical results and complement fully numerical 
       treatments. The authors also briefly discuss some 
       important considerations to be taken into account when 
       developing a numerical code for computer simulation of 
       fluid flows. Although the text is populated throughout 
       with examples and problems from the field of astrophysics 
       and planetary science, the text is eminently suitable as a
       general introduction to fluid dynamics. It is assumed that
       the readers are mathematically equipped with a reasonable 
       knowledge in analysis, including basics of ordinary and 
       partial differential equations and a good command of 
       vector calculus and linear algebra. Each chapter concludes
       with bibliographical notes in which the authors briefly 
       discuss the chapter's essential literature and give 
       recommendations for further, deeper reading. Included in 
       each chapter are a number of problems, some of them 
       relevant to astrophysics and planetary science. The book 
       is written for advanced undergraduate and graduate 
       students, but will also prove a valuable source of 
       reference for established researchers.
