building on earlier notes by P. H. Haynes
This page gives access to the electronic version of my IB Fluid Dynamics lecture notes, as taught in recent years. To keep file sizes manageable, the notes are split into four sections. Each is available for download in acrobat (.pdf) and gzipped postscript (.ps.gz) form, from the links below. (I recommend xpdf, available on most linux systems, to read the acrobat version. To read the .ps.gz version, use gunzip then ghostview.)
Some imperfections remain in the electronic version. If you would like a paper copy of the more definitive version handed out in lectures -- almost completely free of typographical errors, I believe -- then please email me (mem at damtp.cam.ac.uk) and I'll be glad to supply such a copy.
I am grateful to Sarah Peake, Rebecca Mason and Gill Newton, who did most of the hard work scanning the pictures and converting the files, and grateful also to Jon Peatfield and Elie Bassouls who gave further advice on the technicalities of file conversions.
