Some Mathematical Foundations of Continuum Mechanics
Friday 15th November, 2013 16:00-17:00 Maths 516
We will talk about vector and tensor algebra used in Continuum Mechanics. In particular, we will define second and higher order Cartesian tensors and consider some of their most important properties (with proofs where it is appropriate). We will also consider some applications of this mathematical theory in Continuum Mechanics.
