`A lot of results are new, and for each of these recent results the complete and self-contained proofs are given..............Summarizing the impression of this interesting book, it is worth pointing out that it is written in an easy-reading fashion along with the deep and comprehensive analysis of the topics which are at the highest level of the importance in the modern theory of nonlinear differential equations' Zentralblatt fur Mathematik 866-487
Everybody who is interested in studying mathematical questions arisng in fluid mechanics should read this book. (joma)
`...the material presented in the book is not only essential in the mathematical treatment of fluid mechanics but also in many other fields where the theory of non linear partial differential equations plays an important role. Its reading will become a must for researchers in this area of mathematics.' European Journal of Mechanics, B/Fluids, vol. 17, no. 3, May - June 1998
`The book in question goes far beyond the scope of the existing monographs on Euler and Navier Stokes equations, reaches the current frontiers of research, and points to numerous extensions or open problems... The text...is written in a clear and precise, but nevertheless lively style.' SIAM Review, vol. 40, no. 2, June 1998
`Without doubt the monograph will soon become one of the main references on the mathematical analysis of fluid mechanics and should be on the bookshelves of every researcher in the field. Having read the first volume I am looking forward to the second volume on compressible volumes.' SIAM Review, vol. 40, no. 2, June 1998
`the gathering of rigorous results in an easily accessible publication with an extensive bibliography will be of benefit to all workers in theoretical Fluid mechanics.' Mathematika, 44
`Everybody who is interested in studying mathematical questions arising in fluid mechanics should read this book.' European Mathematical Society, issue 27, March 1998
