Introduction to Continuum Mechanics for Engineers
by Ray M. Bowen
Publisher: Springer 2007
Number of pages: 305
This textbook is intended to introduce engineering graduate students to the essentials of modern Continuum Mechanics. The objective of an introductory course is to establish certain classical continuum models within a modern framework. The book is essentially self contained and should be suitable for self study.

The advanced book on mechanics for mathematicians, physicists, and engineers interested in geometrical methods in mechanics. The basic results in manifold theory are included, as well as some key facts from point set topology and Lie group theory.

An important reference for any researcher in kinematics, it covers many important results for analysis and design of mechanisms. The authors used the adjective theoretical in the title in order to distinguish the subject from applied kinematics.

This little book is of a strictly elementary character, and is intended for the use of students whose knowledge of Geometry and Algebra is not presumed to extend beyond the first two Books of Euclid and the solution of simple Quadratic Equations.

These notes cover classical mechanics and special relativity. You will learn new techniques that will allow you to attack a wider set of problems than you saw in the introductory sequences as well as provide you a deeper understanding of physics.
