The first edition of this book was published in when Sir Horace Lamb was a much younger person (he was serving as an officer in international associations in the 's). It remains a standard classic text in hydrodynamics, covering the fundamentals of the subject/5(16). Horace Lamb was an English applied mathematician who is known for coining the word vorticity, and for his influential works on classical physics, including his Hydrodynamics and Dynamical Theory of Sound. He also served as a professor at the University of Adelaide and Owens College. Sir Horace Lamb () the British mathematician, wrote a number of influential works in classical physics. A pupil of Stokes and Clerk Maxwell, he taught for ten years as the first professor of mathematics at the University of Adelaide before returning to Britain to take up the post of professor of physics at the Victoria University of Manchester (where he had first studied mathematics.

Page - When a small obstacle, such as fishing-line, is moved forward slowly through still water, or (which, of course, comes to the same thing) is held stationary in moving water, the surface is covered with a beautiful wave-pattern, fixed relatively to the obstacle. On the up-stream side the wave-length is short, and, as Thomson has shown, the force governing the vibrations is principally. Sir Horace Lamb FRS (/læm/; 27 November – 4 December ) was an English applied mathematician and author of several influential texts on classical physics, among them Hydrodynamics () and Dynamical Theory of Sound (). Both of these books are still in print.
