Classic introduction to Einstein's theory, written by a prominent physicist, provides the two main postulates upon which the theory rests and their experimental evidence. The relation between relativity theory and the principle of least action is discussed, as is a four-dimensional method of expressing and treating the results of relativity theory. 1917 edition.

Geometric Continuum Mechanics and Induced Beam Theories

This research monograph discusses novel approaches to geometric continuum mechanics and introduces beams as constraint continuous bodies. In the coordinate free and metric independent geometric formulation of continuum mechanics as well as for beam theories, the principle of virtual work serves as the fundamental principle of mechanics. Based on the perception of analytical mechanics that forces of a mechanical system are defined as dual quantities to the kinematical description, the virtual work approach is a systematic way to treat arbitrary mechanical systems. Whereas this methodology is very convenient to formulate induced beam theories, it is essential in geometric continuum mechanics when the assumptions on the physical space are relaxed and the space is modeled as a smooth manifold. The book addresses researcher and graduate students in engineering and mathematics interested in recent developments of a geometric formulation of continuum mechanics and a hierarchical development of induced beam theories.

Dieses Buch ist bis heute eine der populärsten Darstellungen der Relativitätstheorie geblieben. In der vorliegenden Version haben J. Ehlers und M. Pössel vom Max-Planck-Institut für Gravitationsphysik (Albert-Einstein-Institut) in Golm/Potsdam den Bornschen Text kommentiert und einen den anschaulichen, aber präzisen Stil Borns wahrendes, umfangreiches Ergänzungskapitel hinzugefügt, das die stürmische Entwicklung der Relativiatätstheorie bis hin zu unseren Tagen nachzeichnet. Eingegangen wird auf Gravitationswellen und Schwarze Löcher, auf neuere Entwicklungen der Kosmologie, auf Ansätze zu einer Theorie der Quantengravitation und auf die zahlreichen raffinierten Experimente, welche die Gültigkeit der Einsteinschen Theorie mit immer größerer Genauigkeit bestätigt haben. Damit bleibt dieses Buch nach wie vor einer der unmittelbarsten Zugänge zur Relativitätstheorie für alle die sich für eine über das rein populärwissenschaftliche hinausgehende Einführung interessieren.

Die amerikanische Ausgabe dieses Buches erschien 1947 in der dritten, nicht unwesentlich erweiterten Auflage. Der Verfasser erwähnt in seinem Vorwort, daß es ursprünglich aus dem Text von Vorlesungen an der Design School der W estinghouse Company entstand und zu nächst für den Unterrichtsgebrauch an der Harvard Engineering School herausgegeben wurde. In die Neuauflage wurden neue Veröffentlichungen und eigene Erfahrungen eingearbeitet. Im Vorwort der deutschen Erstauflage (1936) wurde darauf hin gewiesen, daß das vorliegende Buch eine glückliche, dem ingenieur mäßigen Denken entsprechende Anschaulichkeit hat. Der Verfasser ver meidet es, lediglich Gebrauchsanweisungen für Rechenvorschriften zu geben; andererseits verzichtet er auf die Ausarbeitung der vollstän digen, strengen Theorie. Er versteht es, dem Leser die wesentlichen Zusammenhänge auch verwickelter Erscheinungen plausibel zu machen. So vermittelt die Darstellung nicht einen höheren theoreti schen Überblick, sondern leitet den Leser mit einfacher mathematischer oder anschaulicher mechanischer Begründung auf einen Weg, der in praktischen Schwingungsfragen zur zahlenmäßigen Lösung, mindestens aber zu einer guten Annäherung der "exakten" Lösung führt. Eine Fülle von Beispielen und Aufgaben regt dazu an, die Beherrschung der dargelegten Rechenverfahren zu erproben und zu vertiefen. Aus diesen Gründen erfolgte die Übersetzung in die deutsche Sprache. Inzwischen ist die amerikanische Ausgabe mit großem Erfolg im Hochschulunterricht eingesetzt worden. Den deutschen Leser inter essiert vielleicht der Hinweis, daß der Hochschulunterricht in Amerika von der europäischen Art sehr verschieden ist. Die Vorlesungen werden nach einem bestimmten "Textbuch" gelesen.

This volume presents a collection of contributions on advanced approaches of continuum mechanics, which were written to celebrate the 60th birthday of Prof. Holm Altenbach. The contributions are on topics related to the theoretical foundations for the analysis of rods, shells and three-dimensional solids, formulation of constitutive models for advanced materials, as well as development of new approaches to the modeling of damage and fractures.

Written in response to the dearth of practical and meaningful textbooks in the field of fundamental continuum mechanics, this comprehensive treatment offers students and instructors an immensely useful tool. Its 115 solved problems and exercises not only provide essential practice but also systematically advance the understanding of vector and tensor theory, basic kinematics, balance laws, field equations, jump conditions, and constitutive equations. Readers follow clear, formally precise steps through the central ideas of classical and modern continuum mechanics, expressed in a common, efficient notation that fosters quick comprehension and renders these concepts familiar when they reappear in other contexts. Completion of this brief course results in a unified basis for work in fluid dynamics and the mechanics of solid materials, a foundation of particular value to students of mathematics and physics, those studying continuum mechanics at an intermediate or advanced level, and postgraduate students in the applied sciences. "Should be excellent in its intended function as a problem book to accompany a lecture course." — Quarterly of Applied Math.

This two-part text fills what has often been a void in the first-year graduate physics curriculum. Through its examination of particles and continua, it supplies a lucid and self-contained account of classical mechanics — which in turn provides a natural framework for introducing many of the advanced mathematical concepts in physics. The text opens with Newton's laws of motion and systematically develops the dynamics of classical particles, with chapters on basic principles, rotating coordinate systems, lagrangian formalism, small oscillations, dynamics of rigid bodies, and hamiltonian formalism, including a brief discussion of the transition to quantum mechanics. This part of the book also considers examples of the limiting behavior of many particles, facilitating the eventual transition to a continuous medium. The second part deals with classical continua, including chapters on string membranes, sound waves, surface waves on nonviscous fluids, heat conduction, viscous fluids, and elastic media. Each of these self-contained chapters provides the relevant physical background and develops the appropriate mathematical techniques, and problems of varying difficulty appear throughout the text.
