In this introductory chapter, we work in a one-dimensional (1-D) setting. Firstly, we exemplify the nonstandard integration method we are going to use systematically in Part II. Secondly, we exemplify the Green-kernel integration method to be exploited, in particular, for the problems collected in Part III. Finally, we use these two integration methods to solve the 1-D versions of Kelvin’s and Mindlin’s problems.
