Kundu and Ira M. Cohen (Elsevier, 2008 ISBN 0-12-178253-0). Available in the Coop, or from Amazon for $84. This book is strongly recommended and readings will be assigned from this text.

The resource book number (product ID) is 104770. Another excellent book that is available is Introduction to Fluid Mechanics by James A. Fay (MIT Press, 1994), also available at the Coop or the MIT Press Bookstore (right opposite the Coop). Fay’s book is at the advanced undergraduate level, but covers most of the topics dealt with in the lectures. The lectures will cover some material with greater rigor or different emphasis; special notes are provided for selected topics, as indicated in the outlines. Students are responsible for material covered in class or indicated in the course outlines.
