There are either too many possible answers, or good answers would be too long for this format. Please add details to narrow the answer set or to isolate an issue that can be answered in a few paragraphs.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

This is a pretty good quick reference: If you want a detailed treatment, Anderson's 'Fundamentals of Aerodynamics' treats the subject quite well, going into detail about the accuracy of each model under different Mach and Reynold's numbers. – MattG Aug 13 '13 at 16:14
Any fluid dynamics textbook (Acheson, Kundu & Cohen, etc) should cover this information. – Kyle Kanos Aug 13 '13 at 16:15
Even CFD by Anderson is a good reference. – aditya kp Aug 17 '13 at 2:13
