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