Analysis of Hydrodynamic Models presents a concise treatment of a number of partial differential equations of hydrodynamic origin, including the incompressible Euler equations, SQG, Boussinesq, incompressible porous medium, and Oldroyd-B. The author’s approach is based on properties of the particle trajectory maps and on analysis of the back-and-forth passage between the Lagrangian and the Eulerian descriptions. This concise, unified approach brings readers up to date on current open problems.

This book is intended for graduate students and junior researchers in mathematics.
