Part of the Universitext book series (UTX)


This chapter is devoted to the presentation of a representative collection of variational pripciples of continuum mechanics. Our principal objective is to present a general method for developing such principles, and to illustrate, by examples, its application to a number of different areas of solid and continuum mechanics.
