Book: Foundations of Fluid Mechanics by Giovanni Gallavotti
The imagination is stricken by the substantial conceptual identity between the problems met in the  theoretical study of physical phenomena. It is absolutely unexpected and surprising, whether one  studies equilibrium statistical mechanics, or quantum field theory, or solid state physics, or celestial mechanics, harmonic analysis, elasticity, general relativity or fluid mechanics and chaos in turbulence. The  analysis  is preceded  by a long discussion  of the phenomenological aspects concerning the  fluid equations and their properties  with particular attention to  the  meaning  of the various approximations.
