*Editorial reviews*

Publisher Synopsis

'The present book is a masterful exposition of fluid and solid mechanics, informed by the ideas of scaling and intermediate asymptotics, a methodology and point of view of which Professor Barenblatt is one of the originators ... This is indeed a remarkable book.' Alexandre J. Chorin, from the Foreword 'This book achieves clarity of exposition on fringe but important topics that no other book on the market achieves ... the legendary author Barenblatt and his groundbreaking lifework are spectacularly immortalized in Flow, Deformation and Fracture.' Colin R. Meyer, Pure and Applied Geophysics Read more...
