(Brady, Anderson 2013) Robert Brady in "The Irrotational motion of Compressible Inviscid Fluid" outlines a comprehensive physical mapping between quantum mechanical theory and fluid dynamics in which he not only provides an analog for gravity but also introduces the concept of a relativistic quasiparticle called a 'sonon' which exhibits spin 1/2 symmetry (Brady 2013).
For an irrotational motion Where is the total velocity potential.
It covers kinematics of fluid flows, dynamics of frictionless fluids, the irrotational motion of an incompressible fluid: Laplace's equations, the motion of bodies in an incompressible frictionless fluid, and plane irrotational incompressible flow: complex variables.
