"This book begins with a basic introduction to three major areas of the subject: thermal convection, rotating and curved flows, and parallel shear flows.
There follows a comprehensive account of recent advances in the mathematical theory for parallel shear flows. A number of applications of the linear theory are discussed, including the effects of stratification and unsteadiness.
The book concludes with a chapter describing some of the fundamental ideas involved in current work on nonlinear hydrodynamic stability."--Jacket.
