This volume is a thorough introduction to contemporary research in elasticity, and may be used as a working textbook at the graduate level for courses in pure or applied mathematics or in continuum mechanics. It provides a thorough description (with emphasis on the nonlinear aspects) of the two competing mathematical models of three-dimensional elasticity, together with a mathematical analysis of these models. The book is as self-contained as possible.

Industry Reviews

C.O. Horgan
The book certainly earns its place in the annals of distinguished contributions to elasticity theory. One is led to anticipate eagerly the appearance of Volume 2.
Mathematical Reviews
J. Francu
The book is written in the elegant, bright style of an experienced pedagogue. The well thought out notation is unified throughout the whole volume. Besides specific concepts of elasticity, all nontrivial auxiliary topics of functional analysis and other branches of mathematics are explained and illustrated by examples. The chapters are concluded by exercises. The book is also ideal from a formal point of view, using various typefaces for emphasis and framing important formulas and figures. The volume is equipped with a 20-page survey of the main notation, definitions and formulas, a 573-item bibliography, and a 17-page index. This nice book can be fully recommended as an introductory textbook to contemporary nonlinear elasticity as well as a working textbook at graduate level for courses in pure or applied mathematics or in continuum mechanics.

Mathematical Elasticity is strongly recommended to those with some background in elasticity who would like to understand the most mathematical aspects of nonlinear elasticity theory. The book will serve as an excellent reference.
Applied Mechanics Reviews
G.P. MacSithigh
...covers a great deal of material without ever seeming cramped or cluttered... on each topic he proceeds briskly to the heart of the matter... a stimulating way to learn a subject... I come away from the book with a much-enhanced appreciation of several topics I thought I already knew... a superb textbook...
SIAM Review
R.J. Knops
The author states that his aims are to convince "the application-minded readers that analysis is indispensable for a genuine understanding of elasticity, ... especially in view of the increasing emphasis on nonlinearities" and, on the other hand, to convince "the more mathematically oriented readers that elasticity, far from being a dusty classical field, is on the contrary a prodigious source of challenging open problems." These aims are abundantly fulfilled, and the enriching interlacing of mathematics with sound physical insight firmly places the book in the tradition of those who in the postwar period set about the task of revitalising and rigorously restructuring continuum mechanics. The book, a masterly account of the subject, deserves the widest readership. The second volume is awaited with equal enthusiasm.
