About this book

Contains thirty-one papers by international experts in hydrodynamics, based on talks at a symposium held in honour of Professor Enok Palm on his 70th birthday.

This exquisitely produced 402-page book ... The editors have been able to persuade many authoritative engineers, scientists, and distinguished researchers ... to contribute ... This book radiates the warmth and the affection of its authors for Enok Palm as a teacher, scientist, and mentor. It is also a gift to fluid dynamists with an intellectual interest in waves and nonlinear processes in hydrodynamics. It is highly recommended for libraries and for doctoral students in search of mountains to climb, oceans to cross, and new frontiers to conquer.' Turgut Sarpkaya in AIAA Journal, 35: 6 (1997)
