"Analyzes a wide range of problem classes originating in applied mechanics, stressing the use of influence (Green's) functions in their analysis. Provides an extensive list of influence functions and matrices-several in print for the first time. Addresses areas such as fluid flow, acoustics, electromagnetism, heat transfer, and elasticity."
