Kinematics of a Deformable Body

  • Jan Awrejcewicz
Part of the Advances in Mechanics and Mathematics book series (AMMA, volume 28)


The notion of a tensor appears not only in kinematics, but also in statics, and the term was intentionally used several times in previous chapters of the book (see also [1, 2]).
