The Eulerian system of dynamic equations for the ideal (nondissipative) fluid is closed but incomplete. The complete system of dynamic equations arises after appending Lin constraints which describe motion of fluid particles in a given velocity field. The complete system of dynamic equations fo the ideal fluid can be integrated. Description in terms of hydrodynamic potentials (DTHP) arises as a result of this integration.

The complete system of dynamic equations fo the ideal fluid can be integrated. Description in terms of hydrodynamic potentials (DTHP) arises as a result of this integration. The integrated system contains indefinite functions of three arguments, which can be expressed via initial and boundary conditions. The remaining initial and boundary conditions for the integrated system can be made universal (i.e. similar for all fluid flows), and the resulting system of equations contains full information about a fluid flow including initial and boundary conditions for the fluid flow. Some hydrodynamic potentials appear to be frozen into the fluid, and the Kelvin's theorem on the velocity circulation can be formulated in a contour-free form. Description in terms of the wave function (DTWF) appears to be a kind of DTHP. Calculation of slightly rotational flows can be carried out on the basis of DTHP, or DTWF. Such a description of a rotational flow appears to be effective. system contains indefinite functions of three arguments, which can be expressed via initial and boundary conditions.
