Foundations of Convection with Density Stratification
Springer, 2021, 248 pp., Hardcover. $99.99. www.springer.com
This book continues the process of systematization of knowledge about convection. It provides a short compendium of knowledge on the linear and weakly nonlinear limits of the Boussinesq convection and a review of the theory on fully developed Boussinesq convection. The third chapter is devoted to a detailed derivation and a study of three aforementioned stages of stratified (anelastic) convection, with a full solution in the marginal stage provided for the first time. Detailed and systematic explanations are given. This book is intended mainly as a textbook for courses on hydrodynamics and convective flows, for the use of lecturers and students; however, it also serves as a practical reference for the entire scientific community.
