The Tenth International School on
Mathematical Theory in Fluid Mechanics was held at the small
village of Paseky in the northern part of the Czech Republic in May
11--18, 2007. The main part of the program of the school consisted
of series of lectures delivered by Thomas Alazard, Camillo De Lellis,
Eduard Feireisl, Isabelle Gallagher, and Herbert Koch. The presented
book contains five survey contributions, based on the respective
series of lectures.
The article "A minicourse on the low Mach number limit" by Thomas Alazard is devoted to the study of the low Mach number limit for classical solutions of the compressible Navier-Stokes or Euler equations for non-isentropic flows. The general case is studied, in which the combined effects of large temperature variations and thermal conduction are taken into account.
