Compilation of class notes for phy454h1s, continuum mechanics (including all lectures)

Posted by peeterjoot on April 6, 2012

As mentioned before the midterm, I’ve got a compilation of class notes here:

This has been updated now with the full set of lecture notes from class. Included in this document are:

  • my lecture notes, often auxmented by whatever I felt required to make them understandable to myself
  • some solved problems
  • some stuff I was playing with on the side
  • links to the various mathematica notebooks (some of which have some cool stuff, and can be viewed after download with the free wolfram CDF player).

All of the following, previously posted individually are included, and will no longer be maintained independently
