Dynamical Problems

  • Stuart S. Antman
Part of the Applied Mathematical Sciences book series (AMS, volume 107)


In this chapter we treat a collection of elementary but illuminating dynamical problems for elastic and viscoelastic bodies. This material merely serves as an entrée to some parts of the rich and fascinating modern research on the quasilinear hyperbolic and parabolic systems applicable to elasticity. We develop the theory only in the context of concrete problems, so that we can concentrate on the effects of constitutive hypotheses.
