9780198506256: Elasticity and Geometry: From hair curls to the nonlinear response of shells

We experience elasticity everywhere in daily life: in the straightening or curling of hairs, the irreversible deformations of car bodies after a crash, or the bouncing of elastic balls in ping-pong or soccer. The theory of elasticity is essential to the recent developments of applied and fundamental science, such as the bio-mechanics of DNA filaments and other macro-molecules, and the animation of virtual characters in computer graphics and materials science. In this book, the emphasis is on the elasticity of thin bodies (plates, shells, rods) in connection with geometry. It covers such topics as the mechanics of hairs (curled and straight), the buckling instabilities of stressed plates, including folds and conical points appearing at larger stresses, the geometric rigidity of elastic shells, and the delamination of thin compressed films. It applies general methods of classical analysis, including advanced nonlinear aspects (bifurcation theory, boundary layer analysis), to derive detailed, fully explicit solutions to specific problems. These theoretical concepts are discussed in connection with experiments. The book is self-contained. Mathematical prerequisites are vector analysis and differential equations. The book can serve as a concrete introduction to nonlinear methods in analysis.

Dr. Basile Audoly is Research Fellow at CNRS, Paris.

Professor Yves Pomeau is Senior Researcher at CNRS and Professor of Mathematics at the University of Arizona.

Review:


"A most welcome addition to the literature with a refreshingly new approach, first in that it discusses in depth how the differential geometry of surfaces is connected with the theory of elastic plates and shells, second in that, as a consequence of this perspective, it sheds new light and understanding on practical problems."
--Philippe Ciarlet, City University of Hong Kong
