  • Strikes a balance between fundamentals and applications
  • Requisite mathematical background carefully collected in two introductory chapters and two appendices
  • Readers gain the mathematical tools to effectively solve problems in continuum mechanics
  • Interdisciplinary applications will appeal to a broad range of students and professionals
  • Includes significant applications to areas such as porous media, electromagnetic fields, and phase transitions

This textbook's methodological approach familiarizes readers with the mathematical tools required to correctly define and solve problems in continuum mechanics. Covering essential principles and fundamental applications, this second edition of Continuum Mechanics using Mathematica® provides a solid basis for a deeper study of more challenging and specialized problems related to nonlinear elasticity, polar continua, mixtures, piezoelectricity, ferroelectricity, magneto-fluid mechanics, and state changes (see A. Romano, A. Marasco, Continuum Mechanics: Advanced Topics and Research Trends, Springer (Birkhäuser), 2010, ISBN 978-0-8176-4869-5).


Key topics and features:
* Concise presentation strikes a balance between fundamentals and applications
* Requisite mathematical background carefully collected in two introductory chapters and one appendix
* Recent developments highlighted through coverage of more significant applications to areas such as wave propagation, fluid mechanics, porous media, linear elasticity.

This second edition expands the key topics and features to include:

* Two new applications of fluid dynamics: meteorology and navigation

* New exercises at the end of the existing chapters

* The packages are rewritten for Mathematica 9

Continuum Mechanics using Mathematica®: Fundamentals, Methods, and Applications is aimed at advanced undergraduates, graduate students, and researchers in applied mathematics, mathematical physics, and engineering. It may serve as a course textbook or self-study reference for anyone seeking a solid foundation in continuum mechanics.
