About the Author

Paolo Podio-Guidugli studied Nuclear Engineering at the University of Pisa. He has served as a full professor of Mechanics of Materials and Structures at the Universities of Ancona, Pisa, and Roma Tor Vergata. He is a fellow of the Accademia Nazionale dei Lincei. He has published more than 240 papers and 7 books, and co-edited 4 books. His research interests are in foundational and applied issues in rational continuum physics: elasticity (general and applied to rods, plates, shells, and nanotubes), plasticity, multiscale modeling of condensed matter, materials (oriented, with internal constraints, with elastic range), phase interface motion, phase segregation by atomic rearrangement, crack propagation, deformable ferromagnets, strain and superconductivity, and thermodynamics.
