Written for upper-level aerospace and mechanical engineering students on courses in compressible or low speed aerodynamics, this book summarizes and brings up to date the field of inviscid, incompressible and irrotational aerodynamics in a comprehensive, and detailed manner. Worked examples throughout the text and end-of-chapter problems aim to help students better understand the material.

'This is a thoroughly modern and up-to-date high level academic textbook on theoretical low-speed aerodynamics, aimed at the advanced undergraduate or Masters level … Highly recommended.' Dr J. F. Henderson, Aeronautical Journal
'A superb, helpful reference.' Current Engineering Practice
'… a significant contribution to the aerodynamic literature. Several of my students have been able to begin their research careers in aerodynamics by reading and digesting this book. It is certainly a significant contribution to modern aerodynamic theory and numerical computation of aerodynamics flows over both simple 2-D and complex 3-D shapes.' Journal of Fluids Engineering
This 2001 book offers a treatment of low-speed aerodynamics. It presents both the theory of inviscid, incompressible, and irrotational aerodynamics, and the computational techniques now available to solve complex problems. This second edition includes a new chapter on the laminar boundary layer, the latest versions of computational techniques, and additional coverage of interaction problems.
