This graduate-level study approaches mathematical foundations of 3-dimensional elasticity using modern differential geometry and functional analysis. It is directed to mathematicians, engineers and physicists who wish to see this classical subject in a modern setting with examples of newer mathematical contributions. The authors have incorporated relevant problems throughout the text. Jerrold E. Marsden is Professor of Mathematics, University of California, Berkeley. Thomas J. R. Hughes is Professor of Mechanical Engineering, Stanford University. 1983 edition.Marsden, Jerrold E. is the author of 'Mathematical Foundations of Elasticity' with ISBN 9780486678658 and ISBN 0486678652.
