The authors of this book are three eminent researchers who have made significant contributions to thermoelasticity. They have produced an excellent textbook. It is meant for senior undergraduates or graduate students. The reader is expected to be familiar with engineering mechanics and partial differential equations. Some use is made of Laplace transforms and special functions, in particular, the Bessel functions and the Legendre polynomials and functions. Appendices at the end of the book give...
