By Gui-Qiang Chen,Michael Grinfeld,R. J. Knops

This booklet examines the interesting interface among differential geometry and continuum mechanics, now acknowledged as being of accelerating technological importance. issues mentioned comprise isometric embeddings in differential geometry and the relation with microstructure in nonlinear elasticity, using manifolds within the description of microstructure in continuum mechanics, experimental size of microstructure, defects, dislocations, floor energies, and nematic liquid crystals. Compensated compactness in partial differential equations is usually treated.

The quantity is meant for experts and non-specialists in natural and utilized geometry, continuum mechanics, theoretical physics, fabrics and engineering sciences, and partial differential equations. it's going to even be of curiosity to postdoctoral scientists and complex postgraduate learn students.

These lawsuits contain revised written types of the vast majority of papers offered by means of best specialists on the ICMS Edinburgh Workshop on Differential Geometry and Continuum Mechanics held in June 2013. All papers were peer reviewed.
