New book for undergraduate mechanics of solids

Lallit Anand, Ken Kamrin, and myself have just come out with a new book, Introducation to Mechanics of Solid Materials, published by Oxford University Press.  The target audience is 3rd or 4th year engineering and science students.

Two new books for continuum mechanics of solids

I would like to announce two new books that Prof. Lallit Anand and I have just published on continuum mechanics of solids.

New Text on Engineering Mechanics (Strength of Materials)


After many years of teaching elementary mechanics and being unhappy with the high price of existing texts and their tendency to lead students into a game of pattern matching as opposed to thinking about fundamentals, I decided to assemble my lectures into a book.  So if you are looking for something different and concise on this topic you may wish to have a look at this book.  The book is also well suited for use as a refresher due to its brevity.

Citation Statistics Report by the IMU

Here is a report on Citation Statistics written by the  International Mathematical Union written in cooperation with the ICIAM and IMS.

Given all the discussion on impact factors and h-indicies, I thought many people may find this report interesting.
