You may be interested in visiting the following supplementary texts; the first four have been placed on reserve in the math library (Van Vleck B224):
This course will explore the dynamics of fluids from a rigorous mathematical perspective. Topics will include the kinematics of fluids, the Navier-Stokes equations, potential flows, vorticity dynamics, viscosity-dominated (Stokes) flows, lubrication theory, classical airfoil theory, biolocomotion, boundary layers, and water waves. Discussions will take us from classical, centuries-old techniques to open questions of active research and just recently observed phenomena. Incoming students should have experience with partial differential equations and basic complex variables.
