In many areas of mechanics the interplay between mathematics and physics is crucial for understanding not only underlying principles but also practical applications. This is particularly the case in hydrodynamics and elasticity. Over thirty articles in this volume discuss various aspects including perturbation methods and applications, instability, bifurcations and transition to chaos, multibody dynamics and control, mechanics and mathematics of non-classical materials, and new interactions of mathematics and mechanics. The book addresses scientists and engineers working in these areas including those interested in applied mathematical analysis.
