Besides its practical importance in a host of technical applications, fluid mechanics retains its intrinsic interest as a physical discipline. The governing equations are nonlinear, and hence the motion of fluids demonstrates the complexities of solution of a nonlinear field theory, a fact that has been appreciated more and more in recent times. The most striking manifestations of this nonlinearity are shock waves and turbulence, corresponding to nonlinear wave and vortex interactions, respectively.
