"This book describes, besides the physical and mathematical background of finite element method (FEM), special discretization techniques and algorithms which have to be applied to nonlinear problems of solid mechanics. … The book is intended for graduate students of mechanical and civil engineering who want to familiarize themselves with numerical methods applied to problems in solid mechanics. This book applies also to PhD students and engineers working in industry who need further background information on the application of finite elements to nonlinear problems." (Razvan Raducanu, Zentrablatt MATH, Vol. 1153, 2009)
“The aim of this book is to describe ‘special discretization techniques and algorithms … for nonlinear problems of solid mechanics’. It is written primarily as a textbook for graduate students of mechanical and civil engineering … the terminology and style are also accessible to researchers with an applied mathematics background.” (Christoph Ortner, Mathematical Reviews, Issue 2010 a)
