About this book


For the past three decades the mechanics of structured media, frequently called micromechanics, has been recognized as an important new approach in the analysis of material behaviour. This book discusses the modern use of mathematical analysis to the stochastic mechanics of discrete media. The theoretical study is therefore based on set and measure theory and the application of point processes.
