By Morton Gurtin

This booklet offers an advent to the classical theories of continuum mechanics; specifically, to the theories of excellent, compressible, and viscous fluids, and to the linear and nonlinear theories of elasticity. those theories are vital, not just simply because they're acceptable to a majority of the issues in continuum mechanics bobbing up in perform, yet simply because they shape an excellent base upon which one could easily build extra complicated theories of fabric habit. additional, even if realization is restricted to the classical theories, the therapy is smooth with an important emphasis on foundations and structure
