- Homework Statement
- I do not understand stress energy tensor for fluids

- Relevant Equations
- Goldstein's "Classical Mechanics" third edition equation 13.78

I do private studies on my own for fun and right now I read about relativistic field theory as a preparation for later studies of quantum field theory.

I simply do not understand where equation 13.78 in Goldstein's "Classical Mechanics" third edition comes from. Please explain.

Please also recommend books about advanced fluid physics. I have Faith A Morrison's "An introduction to fluid mechanics", but it does not treat relativistic stress energy tensors.

Please also recommend books about classical relativistic field theory which are a bit more detailed than Goldstein's rather brief treatment.

I would be very grateful for help. Physics Forums is my only mentor.
