Summary:
"The required mathematical background is given in several appendices, although some basic understanding of differential geometry and tensor analysis would be helpful. The book is largely self-contained and should serve a readership of graduate students, researchers, and engineers in applied mathematics, mechanics, and physics."--Jacket.

Abstract:

Focuses on the modeling of continua that exhibit the property of singularities in fields. This book presents a rational theory of continuum thermomechanics taking into account the existence and  Read more...
