**Elements of Gas Dynamics**

First-rate text covers introductory
concepts from thermodynamics, one-dimensional gas dynamics and one-dimensional
wave motion, waves in supersonic flow, flow in ducts and wind tunnels, methods
of measurement, the equations of frictionless flow, small-perturbation theory,
transonic flow, and much more. For advanced undergraduate or graduate physics
and engineering students with at least a working knowledge of calculus and basic
physics. Exercises demonstrate application of material in text.
