Lecture notes are not offered. The lectures will be closely related, however, to the book "Strömungsmechanik" by H. Kuhlmann, Pearson Studium, 2007 (in German). Further reading will be announced during the course.

Please note the reprint of "K. Wieghardt, Theoretische Strömunglehre" which is freely avaiblable as pdf under www.univerlag.uni-goettingen.de.
