A pioneer in the fields of statistics and probability theory, Richard von Mises (18831953) made notable advances in boundary-layer-flow theory and airfoil design. This text on compressible flow, unfinished upon his sudden death, was subsequently completed in accordance with his plans, and von Mises' first three chapters were augmented with a survey of the theory of steady plane flow. Suitable as a text for advanced undergraduate and graduate students as well as a reference for professionals Mathematical Theory of Compressible Fluid Flow examines the fundamentals of high-speed flows, with detailed considerations of general theorems, conservation equations, waves, shocks, and nonisentropic flows.
In this, the final work of his distinguished career, von Mises summarizes his extensive knowledge of a central branch of fluid mechanics. Characteristically, he pays particular attention to the basics, both conceptual and mathematical. The novel concept of a specifying equation clarifies the role of thermodynamics in the mechanics of compressible fluids. The general theory of characteristics receives a remarkably complete and simple treatment, with detailed applications, and the theory of shocks as asymptotic phenomena appears within the context of rational mechanics.

"An outstanding textbook." Scientific, Medical and Technical Books
Almost unsurpassed as a balanced, well-written account of fundamental fluid dynamics, Theory of Flight may still be recommended for a clearer presentation than is to be forced in many more recent works, though it is limited to situations in which air compressibility effects are unimportant.
Designed for the college senior or beginning graduate student, the text assumes a knowledge of the principles of calculus and some training in general mechanics. It is unusual in offering a well-balanced introduction, stressing equally theory and practice. It avoids the formidable mathematical structure of fluid dynamics, while conveying by often unorthodox methods a full understanding of the physical phenomena and mathematical concepts of aeronautical engineering. Theory of Flight contains perhaps the best introduction to the general theory of stability, while the introduction to dynamics of incompressible fluids and the chapters on wing theory remain particularly valuable for their clarity of exposition and originality of thought.
Mises' position as one of the great pioneers in the development of the aeronautical sciences lends a flavor of authenticity not found in more conventional textbooks. Any student who has made himself familiar with his exposition of the fundamentals and applications will have acquired an excellent background for additional, more specialized fields of modern aeronautical engineering.
