About the Authors
  • A. E. H. Love (1863–1940) was an English mathematician and geophysicist renowned for his work on elasticity and wave propagation. Originally published in 1927, as the fourth edition of a title first published in two volumes in 1892 and 1893, this is Love's classic account of the mathematical theory of elasticity. The text provides a detailed explanation of the topic in its various aspects, revealing important relationships with general physics and applications to engineering. Also included are a historical introduction to the theory, notes section, index of authors cited and index of matters treated. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in elasticity, physics and mathematics.
