This chapter discusses the mechanical equilibrium of incompressible fluids, a topic that is conventionally termed hydrostatics. More information on the fundamentals of hydrostatics can be found in Lamb 1928. More information on Maclaurin spheroids, Jacobi ellipsoids, and Roche ellipsoids can be found in Chandrasekhar 1969, and Lamb 1993.
