This ebook presents an creation for graduate scholars and complicated undergraduate scholars to the sector of astrophysical fluid dynamics. even supposing occasionally missed, fluid dynamical approaches play a vital position in nearly all parts of astrophysics. No prior wisdom of fluid dynamics is thought. After setting up the fundamental equations of fluid dynamics and the physics proper to an astrophysical software, various subject matters within the box are addressed. there's additionally a bankruptcy introducing the reader to numerical tools. Appendices checklist helpful actual constants and astronomical amounts, and supply convenient reference fabric on Cartesian tensors, vector calculus in polar coordinates, self-adjoint eigenvalue difficulties and JWKB concept.
