Mathematical Foundations

  • John D. Clayton
Part of the Solid Mechanics and Its Applications book series (SMIA, volume 177)


Chapter 2 includes notation, definitions, and a number of identities that are applied subsequently in later Chapters of the text. Emphasized are differential- geometric aspects of kinematics of finite deformations, linear connections and covariant differentiation, the deformation gradient of continuum mechanics, time derivatives and rate kinematics, theorems of Gauss and Stokes, and compatibility conditions.
