This text presents some theoretical problems related to the continuum mechanics, of particular importance to applied geomechanics, geological engineering and structural geology. The theory of plates and shells is discussed in detail.

We review a new interdisciplinary field between Geology and Physics: the study of the Earth's geo-neutrino flux. We describe competing models for the composition of the Earth, geological insights into the make up of the continental and oceanic crust.

Inverse Theory is concerned with the problem of making inferences about physical systems from data. This course is an introduction to some of the balkanized family of techniques and philosophies that reside under the umbrella of inverse theory.
