The study of incompressible flow covers fluid motions which are gentle enough that the density of the fluid changes little or none. Topics: Conservation equations. Bernoulli's equation, the Navier-Stokes equations. Inviscid flows; vorticity; potential flows; stream functions; complex potentials. Viscosity and Reynolds number; some exact solutions with viscosity; boundary layers; low Reynolds number flows. Waves.
