Fluid mechanics is a branch of science dealing with the study of flows of continua under the action of external forces.  It has a rich history and unchanging core of materials, but is constantly expanding and evolving as new methods, applications, and computational tools are developed. This text presents the basic concepts and methods of fluid mechanics, including Lagrangian and Eulerian descriptions, tensors of stresses and strains, continuity, momentum, energy, thermodynamics laws, and similarity theory.  The models and their solutions are presented within a context of the mechanics of multiphase media.  The treatment fully utilizes the computer algebra and software system Mathematica® to both develop concepts and help the reader to master modern methods of solving problems in fluid mechanics.
