Dover offers a wide variety of classic and contemporary textbooks for core courses on heat transfer, elasticity, thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, and aerospace engineering. Teachers, students, and general readers can choose from cutting-edge works on synthetic fuels and on the subject of invisibility by two of the field’s founders at St. Andrews University in Scotland, Ulf Leonhardt and Thomas Philbin, as well as standard texts by Stephen P. Timoshenko and J. P. Den Hartog. From Abbott to von Mises, we also publish several classic theoretical works of aeronautics and aerospace engineering.
