*Editorial reviews*

Publisher Synopsis

From the reviews:"This book has many facets: the Homotopy Analysis Method (HAM) is applied to various fluid flow problems, but it also includes some theory, useful mini-summaries of previous research, nice physical interpretations, lots of graphs, and much hyperbole. ... The book gives a readable introduction. ... In summary, this book is a useful basic introduction to the Homotopy Analysis Method, especially for those with a fluid mechanics background." (Anthony John Roberts, Mathematical Reviews, March, 2014)"The book is devoted to the presentation of the homotopy analysis method (HAM) applied to the resolution of nonlinear differential equations. ... The book will be useful for researchers or engineers which are faced to the resolution of nonlinear differential equations. Besides the presentation of the HAM, the description of the application of this powerful method to the many examples contained in the book will help them when they will try to apply this tool to their own problems."
