By Oscar Gonzalez,Andrew M. Stuart

A concise account of varied vintage theories of fluids and solids, this publication is for classes in continuum mechanics for graduate scholars and complex undergraduates. completely class-tested in classes at Stanford collage and the collage of Warwick, it really is compatible for either utilized mathematicians and engineers. the one necessities are an introductory undergraduate wisdom of uncomplicated linear algebra and differential equations. not like such a lot current works at this point, this booklet covers either isothermal and thermal theories. The theories are derived in a unified demeanour from the elemental stability legislation of continuum mechanics. meant either for lecture room use and for self-study, every one bankruptcy incorporates a wealth of routines, with totally labored ideas to odd-numbered questions. an entire options guide is obtainable to teachers upon request. brief bibliographies look on the finish of every bankruptcy, pointing to fabric which underpins or expands upon the fabric discussed.
