Reviews

From the reviews:

"Mathematical modeling is usually described as an art rather than a science. Models of Mechanics, by Anders Klarbring, shows that there is indeed a science of mathematical modeling. While the book is obviously focused on developing models specifically for mechanics, it has a broader value as a general exposition of mathematical modeling. For this reason, this small book belongs on the bookshelves of mathematical modelers who do not work in mechanics, as well as those that do." (Glenn Ledder, SIAM Review, Vol. 49 (3), 2007)

“Klarbring’s book is a clear and concise introduction into the foundations of classical mechanics for discrete particles, fluids, and solids … . It is aimed at the intermediate level … seasoned researchers will appreciate the philosophically unified approach to the various systems that are considered. … the text succeeds in providing a unified approach to the modeling of mechanical processes for a broad class of materials and systems.” (Thomas Pence, Meccanica, Vol. 44, 2009)
