Lectures on Three-Dimensional Elasticity
by P. G. Ciarlet
Publisher: Tata Institute of Fundamental Research 1983
Number of pages: 135
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.

The octonions are the largest of the four normed division algebras. The author describes them and their relation to Clifford algebras and spinors, Bott periodicity, projective and Lorentzian geometry, Jordan algebras, and the exceptional Lie groups.

These lecture notes give an overview of how to view and solve differential equations that are common in physics. They cover Hamilton's equations, variations of the Schroedinger equation, the heat equation, the wave equation and Maxwell's equations.
