No previous knowledge of fluid dynamics or astrophysics is required because the author develops all new concepts in context. The first four chapters cover classical fluids, relativistic fluids, photon fluids and plasma fluids, with many cosmic examples being included. The remaining six chapters deal with astrophysical applications: stars, stellar systems, astrophysical plasmas, cosmological applications and large scale structure of the Universe. Astrophysical fluid dynamics is a promising branch of astronomy, with wide applicability. This textbook considers the role of plasma and magnetism in planets, stars, galaxies, the interplanetary, interstellar and intergalactic media, as well as the universe at large. 0aFluid dynamics. 0aAstrophysics.40uhttps://doi.org/10.1017/CBO9781139170475zVolltext aCambridgeCore (Order 30059) a1 aXX(792521.1)wAUTOc1i792521-1001lELECTRONICmZBrNsYtE-BOOKu8/1/2020xUNKNOWNzUNKNOWN1ONLINE
