Overview

This book presents the foundational issues of linear elasticity in a compact, unabridged manner; it is directed to mathematicians and physical scientists who care for approaching this classical subject with rigor and depth.
There are four chapters: the first two illustrate, respectively, the concepts of deformation and strain and of force and stress; the third is devoted to a study of constitutive relations; the last discusses the posing of equilibrium problems. The emphasis is in the description of elasticity as a model whose construction calls for a delicate interplay between physics and mathematics. The conceptual links with general continuum mechanics are carefully indicated. It would not be easy to find in one other book a treatment of such issues as exact and linearized equilibria, the constitutive problems of classification and representation, internal constraints and material symmetries, elastic equilibrium with the Cauchy relations, and elastic equilibrium in the presence of internal constraints.
The book can be be used to teach one-semester advanced undergraduate and graduate courses in elasticity theory to students in applied mathematics and engineering; for this purpose, it contains one hundred exercises of variable difficulty.

As a foundation in linear elasticity, this slim volume illustrates the concepts of deformation, strain, force and stress, studies the constitutive relations, and discusses the posing of equilibrium problems. The emphasis is on the description of elasticity as a model whose construction calls for a delicate interplay between physics and mathematics. Topics include exact and linearized equilibria, the constitutive problems of classification and representation, internal constraints and material symmetries, elastic equilibrium with the Cauchy relations, and the elastic equilibrium in the presence of internal constraints.
