This fully revised and thoroughly updated second edition takes into account the constructive suggestions received from teachers and students alike on the first edition. A new chapter on Generalized Coordinate System has been added to make the book complete. Some more examples have been provided to highlight the applicability of vectors in physics and engineering. The answers to all the end-of-chapter exercises have been given in this edition to enhance the utility of the book. Beginning with the basic concepts of vector methods and various operations of vector-valued functions such as continuity, differentiability, and integrability, the three fundamental differential operators-gradient, divergence, and curl-are fully explored. The text then moves on to provide the essentials of differential geometry with particular reference to curvature and torsion, and Serret-Frenet equations. The chapter on mechanics demonstrates the strength of vectors in tackling physical problems. The book concludes with a new chapter on notions of vectors in the generalized coordinate system. This book is primarily intended for use by undergraduate students of mathematics and science for a course in vector analysis. It will also be useful to engineering students, as part of a course in engineering mathematics, where they are introduced to vector algebra, so essential for assimilating a better understanding of the physical aspects of the theory.

This book is a complete introduction to vector analysis, especially within the context of computer graphics. The author shows why vectors are useful and how it is possible to develop analytical skills in manipulating vector algebra. Even though vector analysis is a relatively recent development in the history of mathematics, it has become a powerful and central tool in describing and solving a wide range of geometric problems. The book is divided into eleven chapters covering the mathematical foundations of vector algebra and its application to, among others, lines, planes, intersections, rotating vectors, and vector differentiation.

Continuum mechanics deals with the stress, deformation, and mechanical behaviour of matter as a continuum rather than a collection of discrete particles. The subject is interdisciplinary in nature, and has gained increased attention in recent times primarily because of a need to understand a variety of phenomena at different spatial scales. The second edition of Principles of Continuum Mechanics provides a concise yet rigorous treatment of the subject of continuum mechanics and elasticity at the senior undergraduate and first-year graduate levels. It prepares engineer-scientists for advanced courses in traditional as well as emerging fields such as biotechnology, nanotechnology, energy systems, and computational mechanics. The large number of examples and exercise problems contained in the book systematically advance the understanding of vector and tensor analysis, basic kinematics, balance laws, field equations, constitutive equations, and applications. A solutions manual is available for the book.
