**Lectures on Three-Dimensional Elasticity**

by P. G. Ciarlet

**Publisher**: Tata Institute of Fundamental Research 1983**ISBN/ASIN**: 0387123318**ISBN-13**: 9780387123318**Number of pages**: 135

**Description**:

In this book a non-linear system of partial differential equations will be established as a mathematical model of elasticity. An energy functional will be established and it will be seen that the equations of equilibrium can be obtained as the Euler equations starting from the energy functional. Existence results will be studied.
