This chapter presents a brief summary of the basic theory of linear piezoelectricity based mainly on the IEEE Standard on Piezoelectricity  and the classical book on piezoelectricity  by H. F. Tiersten who also wrote the theoretical part of . The organization of this chapter is essentially a shortened version of Chapter 2 of An Introduction to the Theory of Piezoelectricity . This chapter uses Cartesian tensor notation, the summation convention for repeated tensor indices, and the convention that a comma followed by an index denotes partial differentiation with respect to the coordinate associated with the index. A superimposed dot represents a time derivative.
