Excerpts from the book
This is the portal for the above book published in early 2005.
Here you will find a number of useful items. The portal will be regularly
updated with new information.
Programs used for working out the examples,
problems, and most of the figures.
The gray-scale figures of the book -
especially the simulations - become much more informative and beautiful in colours.
Gallery of persons
In the books there are sketchy microbiographies of
all the major scientists that have worked on continuum physics. Here you
find links to more extended biographies.
More problems with solutions.
A collection of links to interesting pages, news, extra material
destined for a future edition, and other goodies.
