Zusatztext 'Now those not fortunate enough to have been able to attend the course have the opportunity to see what has made it so special. The present book is a masterful exposition of fluid and solid mechanics! informed by the ideas of scaling and intermediate asymptotics! a methodology and point of view of which Professor Barenblatt is one of the originators ... This is indeed a remarkable book.' Alexandre J. Chorin! from the Foreword Informationen zum Autor G. I. Barenblatt is Emeritus G. I. Taylor Professor of Fluid Mechanics at the University of Cambridge, Emeritus Professor at the University of California, Berkeley, and Principal Scientist in the Institute of Oceanology of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Moscow. Klappentext Drawing on forty years of teaching experience, the author presents the basic concepts of mathematical modeling of fluids and solids. Zusammenfassung An outstanding resource for every teacher and student of the mechanics of continuous media. The author's unique approach! using the concept of intermediate asymptotics! has been tried and tested over a period of forty years teaching the subject in Russia! Europe and America.
