MATHEMATICS APPLIED TO CONTINUUM MECHANICS

MATHEMATICS APPLIED TO CONTINUUM MECHANICS

This book focuses on the fundamental ideas of continuum mechanics by analyzing models of fluid flow and solid deformation and examining problems in elasticity, water waves, and extremum principles. Mathematics Applied to Continuum Mechanics gives anoverview of the subject, with an emphasis on clarity, explanation, and motivation. Extensive exercises and a valuable section containing hints and answers make this an excellent text for both classroom use and independent study. This is an ideal textfor upper-level undergraduate and graduate students in the fields of applied mathematics, science, and engineering.
