Summary:This book presents theoretical nonlinear acoustics in fluids with equal stress on physical foundations and mathematical methods. From first principles in fluid mechanics and thermodynamics a universal mathematical model (Kuznetsov's equation) of nonlinear acoustics is developed. This model is applied to problems such as nonlinear generation of higher harmonics and combination frequencies, the shockwave from a supersonic projectile, propagation of shocks in acoustic beams and nonlinear standing waves in resonators
