The main course text is Kundhu and Cohen, 4th edition, 2007. Older
versions should be fine, but you'll have to dig a bit if equation
numbers have changed etc.
Kundhu and Cohen is good, but falls into the overly-abstract and
mathematical style of physics textbook. Don't let this discourage you
- in order to gain intuition, it is often useful to concoct simple
examples and see if your intuition is correct.
- Batchelor, An Introduction to Fluid Dynamics, 1967, is the classic
in the field. (on course reserve) This book is quite
mathematical, but also very verbose, with a lot of the intuition
explained in great prose.
- Acheson, Fluid dynamics is a good text I learned from in graduate
school (on course reserve)
- Lamb, Hydrodynamics, 1867, is a tough read, but a classic. (on course
reserve and online.)
