robeert In a memoir written in the s, Weinstock recalled how, after he received his PhD in physics from Stanford inhe worked for a time at Harvard’s Radar Research Laboratory as part of the war effort. Theory of Elasticity 1. But, as it turned out, a long teaching career at Stanford, Notre Dame, and finally Oberlin ensued, concluding in after about fifty years. Italy, Germany, and Japan. The clarity of exposition makes this book easily accessible to anyone who has mastered first-year calculus with some exposure to ordinary differential equations.

Later chapters cover isoperimetric problems, geometrical optics, Fermat’s principle, dynamics of particles, the Sturm-Liouville eigenvalue-eigenfunction problem, the theory of elasticity, quantum mechanics, and electrostatics.


After all, the majority of the applications material in Weinstock’s book can easily be found in physics and engineering books; weinstocck in these applications the calculus of variations part is only a small step to get a differential equation for the phenomenon under consideration.
