Abstract : This report briefly summarizes the research that has been performed for the period 1 March 1964 to 31 August 1967 entitled Astrophysical Fluid Dynamics. Most of the research has been involved with the motions of gases in stars. In particular, an effort was made to devise a usuable scheme for calculating convective heat transfer in stars. Other areas of investigation include the motions of the interstellar gas. (Author)
