Chapters  3 and  4 were devoted to qualitative properties in vibration and static deformation of discrete systems, while the focus of this chapter is shifted to similar topics related to Sturm–Liouville systems. We will primarily discuss the qualitative properties of a bar with distributed parameters and in longitudinal vibration.
