On the variational principle for the equations of perfect fluid dynamics. (Sur le principe variationnel des équations de la mécanique des fluides parfaits.) (French) Zbl 0788.76065

A new version of a variational principle for the theory of perfect fluids is presented. This principle is used to obtain the basic equations of the equilibrium theory for both compressible and incompressible case. The motions can be either stationary or instationary.
