By S. Chandrasekhar

Dr. Chandrasekhar's booklet acquired excessive compliment whilst it first seemed in 1961 as a part of Oxford college Press' foreign sequence of Monographs on Physics. on the grounds that then it's been reprinted various instances in its pricey hardcover layout. this primary lower-priced, good paperback version may be welcomed by way of graduate physics scholars and scientists conversant in Dr. Chandrasekhar's paintings, really in mild of the resurgence of curiosity within the Rayleigh-Bénard problem.
This booklet provides a so much lucid creation to the Rayleigh-Bénard challenge: it has additionally been applauded for its thorough, transparent insurance of the speculation of instabilities inflicting convection.
Dr. Chandrasekhar considers many of the regular difficulties in hydromagnetic balance, apart from viscous shear stream; a really good area deserving a e-book unto itself. Contents contain: Rotation; balance of extra common Flows; Bénard challenge; Gravitational Equilibrium and Instability; balance of a Magnetic box; Thermal Instability of a Layer of Fluid heated from less than; Rayleigh-Taylor Instability; Kelvin-Helmholtz Instability; and Onset of Thermal Instability in Fluid Spheres and round Shells.
Each bankruptcy is followed through a bit of bibliographical notes: indexes finding definitions and theorems also are supplied. Graduate scholars in theoretical and experimental physics, in addition to physicists in different fields, will instantly comment upon the transparent exposition, and be joyful this ebook is now so comfortably available.
