This book is primarily intended to enable postgraduate research students to enhance their understanding and expertise in Fluid Mechanics and Magnetohydrodynamics (MHD), subjects no longer treated in isolation. The exercises throughout the book often serve to provide additional and quite significant knowledge or to develop selected mathematical skills, and may also fill in certain details or enhance readers' understanding of essential concepts. A previous background or some preliminary reading in either of the two core subjects would be advantageous, and prior knowledge of multivariate calculus and differential equations is expected.

Roger Hosking has been a mathematics professor for more than 40 years. His published research has extended from MHD instability to various topics in fluid mechanics such as shallow flow over curved beds and waves, and he is particularly well known for mathematical modelling of moving loads on ice sheets and floating ladder rail tracks....

Editorial Reviews

"This book is intended for the use of postgraduate research students. The main purpose is to enhance the understanding of this double research subject, which is in continuous development. . it is remarkable that the concept of fluid (and magnetofluid) is treated to cover both the domains of rarefied and dense plasmas." (Iván Abonyi, zbMATH 1332.76001, 2016)
