During the active life of the Guggenheim Fund for the Promotion of Aeronautics, provision was made for the preparation of a series of monographs on the general subject of Aerodynamic Theory. It was recognized that in its highly specialized form, as developed during the past twenty-five years, there was nowhere to be found a fairly comprehen sive exposition of this theory, both general and in its more important applications to the problems of aeronautic design. The preparation and publication of a series of monographs on the various phases of this subject seemed, therefore, a timely undertaking, representing, as it is intended to do, a general review of progress during the past quarter century, and thus covering substantially the period since flight in heavier than air machines became an assured fact. Such a present taking of stock should also be of value and of interest as furnishing a point of departure from which progress during coming decades may be measured. But the chief purpose held in view in this project has been to provide for the student and for the aeronautic designer a reasonably adequate presentation of background theory. No attempt has been made to cover the domains of design itself or of construction. Important as these are, they lie quite aside from the purpose of the present work.
