Publisher Synopsis

'... some of the characteristics of an excellent study guide are clearly evident here - lucid exposition, copious exercises (many with complete worked solutions), and an obvious attention to detail - and the fact that the text has been honed at the chalk faces of Stanford and Warwick Universities provides a strong indication that were one charged with teaching the fundamentals of continuum mechanics to graduate or advanced undergraduate students this would be an excellent book to use ... I am confident in my assessment that this is an exceptional book ... Having read through Gonzalez and Stuart's book, ... I have deepened my knowledge considerably. I can certainly envisage turning to this book whenever the applicability of the equations I am studying is an issue ... This book forms part of the highly regarded Cambridge Texts in Applied Mathematics and it can only serve to enhance that series' reputation.' Contemporary Physics "Designed for advanced undergraduate and early graduate students in engineering and mathematics, this introductory text is rich with exercises, making it also suitable for self-study for readers with a basic knowledge of linear algebra, multivariate calculus, differential equations and physics. Gonzalez (mathematics, U. of Texas) and Stuart (mathematics, U. of Warwick) keep in mind fields in which the modeling and simulation of materials with significant coupling and thermal effects as they explain tensor algebra and tensor calculus, then give comprehensive coverage of continuum mass and force concepts, kinematics, balance laws, isothermal fluid and solid mechanics and thermal fluid and solid mechanics. Their bibliographical notes are likely to be very helpful to those studying outside the classroom, and they provide an index which should serve as a model for mathematical texts." Book News, Inc. "This book...covers its topics exhaustively and in great detail ... the detailed examples are also very useful for lecturers." - Axel Maas, Mathematical Reviews Read more...
