Overview

This book documents an investigation aimed at translating field dynamics into a language that allows it to be further transferred from the differential geometrician to the wider scientific community. As such, it features 40 end-of-chapter problems — with solutions free to lecturers — to improve interdisciplinary problem-solving in engineering and applied sciences.

Meet the Author

Larry Silverberg received his PhD in engineering mechanics from Virginia Polytechnic Institute in 1983. In 1995 he was awarded a professorship in mechanical and aerospace engineering at North Carolina State University, a post he still holds today. He is the author of some 50 journal articles, a mechanics book, and teaches classes on field theory to students in engineering and the applied sciences. Professor Silverberg's primary research interests lie in field theory and dynamical systems.Larry Silverberg received his PhD in engineering mechanics from the Virginia Polytechnic Institute in 1983 and in 1995 was awarded a professorship in mechanical and aerospace engineering at North Carolina State University, a post he still holds today. He is the author of some 50 articles and one book, and has developed two graduate courses, teaching classes on field dynamics to students in engineering and the applied sciences.
Professor Silverberg's primary research interests currently lie in field dynamics and the control of dynamical systems.
