Fluid Dynamics via Examples and Solutions provides a substantial set of example problems and detailed model solutions covering various phenomena and effects in fluids. The book is ideal as a supplement or exam review for undergraduate and graduate courses in fluid dynamics, continuum mechanics, turbulence, ocean and atmospheric sciences, and related areas. It is also suitable as a main text for fluid dynamics courses with an emphasis on learning by example and as a self-study resource for practicing scientists who need to learn the basics of fluid dynamics.
The author covers several sub-areas of fluid dynamics, types of flows, and applications. He also includes supplementary theoretical material when necessary. Each chapter presents the background, an extended list of references for further reading, numerous problems, and a complete set of model solutions.

Reviews for Fluid Dynamics via Examples and Solutions
There is no better way to fall in love with a particular subject then to learn it through problem solving. Sergey Nazarenko has created an important resource for mathematics and physics students and young researchers by introducing basics and techniques of fluid dynamics. Anyone involved in teaching fluid dynamics will treasure this book because it provides a clear path to help convey the beauty, elegance, and sophistication of this enticing area of science. -Professor Natalia Berloff, Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics, University of Cambridge and Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology This is an excellent book for fluid dynamics students. It gives a good overview of the theory through a large set of worthy example problems. After many classical textbooks on the subject, there is finally one with solved exercises. I fully appreciate the selection of topics. -Professor Miguel Onorato, Physics Department, University of Torino
