The material collected in Chapter 1 is standard. We refer to the classical monographs by Batchelor [18] or Lamb [131] for a full account of the mathematical theory of continuum fluid mechanics. A more recent treatment may be found in Truesdell and Noll [192] or Truesdell and Rajagopal [193]. An excellent introduction to the mathematical theory of waves in fluids is contained in Lighthill’ s book [135].
