book of luciano rezzolla on relativistic hydrodynamics

This is a book I have written with Olindo Zanotti for Oxford University Press. It containts a good part of what you may want to learn about relativistic hydrodynamics, from the mathematical foundations, over to the numerical methods and the astrophysical applications.

A list of typos and the corresponding corrections can be found here. Essentially all of them have been fixed in the paperback version published in August 2018.

Endorsements and more information can be found by clicking on the cover, while you will find some sample material (i.e. Chap. 4) here.

Detailed reviews have been published recently on scientific journals, e.g. by N. Stergioulas for Classical and Quantum Gravity,  J. M. Stewart for Contemporary Physics, T. Kellermann for Physik Journal (in German),  D. Giulini for General Relativity and Gravitation, and I. Abonyi for Zentralblatt Math.

The book is available also from Amazon where it seems to have received a decent response from the readers in the USA, India and Italy.
