Every effort has been made to keep the book free of misprints. The theory of elasticity is a mature field and a large number of solutions are available. We had to make choices in selecting material for this book.

Many worked examples and homework problems are provided. The book is intended for use on graduate courses on dynamics, and will also appeal to researchers in mechanical and aerospace engineering.

Prerequisites for this text include the standard lower-division mathematics and physics courses, though extensive references are provided for the motivated student who has not yet had these.

The principles, methods and techniques in calculus, trigonometry, and co-ordinate geometry are provided as well. Two new chapters have been added: Numerical Methods and Vectors. Mathematics students will find this book extremely useful.
