This chapter presents reduced models of the compressible and incompressible Navier-Stokes equations which are used in the various discretization concepts discussed in the rest of the book. The convergence philosophy of spectral and finite element methods, the combination of which provides a dual path of convergence, is also introduced. Topics covered include the basic equations of fluid dynamics and numerical discretizations.
