We develop a more abstract viewpoint in which one thinks of the dynamics of a system described by a number of generalized coordinates, but in which the dynamics can be encapsulated in a single scalar function: the Lagrangian or the Hamiltonian.

This book summarizes the advances of Continuum Mechanics in several defined areas, with an emphasis on the application aspect: energy materials and systems, materials removal, and mechanical response/deformation of structural components.

This little book is of a strictly elementary character, and is intended for the use of students whose knowledge of Geometry and Algebra is not presumed to extend beyond the first two Books of Euclid and the solution of simple Quadratic Equations.
