A comprehensive textbook covering not only the ordinary theory of the deformation of solids, but also some topics not usually found in textbooks on the subject, such as thermal conduction and viscosity in solids.
For advanced undergraduates, postgraduates and researchers in theoretical physics. Also for mechanical engineers and materials scientists.
Table of Contents
