Overview

This book examines the study of mechanical systems as well as its links to other sciences of nature. It presents the fundamentals behind how mechanical theories are constructed and details the solving methodology and mathematical tools used: vectors, tensors and notions of field theory. It also offers continuous and discontinuous phenomena as well as various mechanical magnitudes in a unitary form by means of the theory of distributions.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
From the reviews:

"This book is the first volume of a treatise on the classical theory of mechanical systems. … The book is useful at the graduate level in physics and mechanical engineering, as well as in mathematics. … The mathematical aspects are carefully presented. The text provides a detailed analysis of some generic examples, which will be enough to show how the theory is applied, at least for experienced readers. The subjects covered by the text are divided into 10 large chapters." (José Fernández-Núñez, Mathematical Reviews, Issue 2008 j)
