Book on N.S. equations
Hi everybody,
I would like to find a best book which talks about the foundamental behavior or characteristics of the NavierStokes equations, Euler equations, or boundary layer equations, etc. Thank you. 
Re: Book on N.S. equations
Check thiese books: 1) Modern Compressible flow: John D. Anderson ... a very nice book... I am his great FAN!
For looking into the derivations starting from molecular collisions look into this: 1) Kinetic equations of gases and plasmas: by TaYou Wu For boundary layers: You can look into some books whose title itself is "BOUNDARY LAYERS" Bye Yogesh 
Re: Book on N.S. equations
If you are looking for mathematical analysis of the NavierStokes equations, Temam's book is a must but it's also very hard to read

Re: Book on N.S. equations
Hi ... Here is an incomplete list but should give you a start 1. C. R. Doering and J. D. Gibbon , Applied analysis of the NavierStokes equations (Excellent book, easy to understand)
2. P. Constantin and C. Foias, NavierStokes equations (Good book.. written for maths students.. but engineers can understand it with some extra effort (ha ha..)) 3. R. Temam, NavierStokes equations (As Gary mentioned.. it's a must but very hard book...I agree!!) 4.O. Ladyzhenskaya, The mathematical theory of viscous incompressible flow ( Again a mustread book but very difficult.. not for first time readers..) 5. Eds: J. G. Heywood et al (lecture notes in mathematics Numbers 1431 and 1530) , The NavierStokes equations : Theory and numerical methods (Collection of papers.. some of them are easy to follow... can be recommended to begineers) 6 Eds. A. Dold and B. Eckmann (lecture notes in mathematics numbers 565 and 771) ...(only for mature readers !!!) Hopefully, this provides you with directions and not digression... a huge amount of work is in journal papers but that's not needed right now!!! Take care Mayank Tyagi
