This monograph provides the fundamental theorems of differential geometry in three-d house, together with an intensive insurance of floor idea. by way of a sequence of rigorously chosen and consultant mathematical versions this monograph additionally explains at size how those theorems are utilized in third-dimensional elasticity and in shell idea. The presentation is largely selfcontained, with a very good emphasis on pedagogy. specifically, no "a priori" wisdom of differential geometry or of elasticity thought is believed, the single standards are a cheap wisdom of simple research, sensible research, and a few acquaintance with usual and partial differential equations.
