### Abstract:

Addresses primarily engineering students with some initial knowledge of matrix algebra. This book also addresses modern developments in the theory of isotropic and anisotropic tensor functions and their applications to continuum mechanics. It is suitable for PhD-students and scientists working in this area.

Publisher Synopsis

From the reviews: "Most books on continuum mechanics begin with a more or less lengthy introduction into this mere mathematical topic. a ] With the present introduction to tensors, Itskov has filled this gap. a ] It is written in a clear and modern style a ] . contains a lot of interesting representations, which will be appreciated by researchers in the field. a ] All in all, the book can be clearly recommended both for students and researchers in the field of continuum mechanics."
