One of many significant items of theoretical examine in any division of data is to discover the perspective from which the topic seems to be in its maximum simplicity. J. Willard Gibbs This publication is an outgrowth of lectures i've got given, off and on over a few 16 years, in graduate classes on the California Institute of know-how, and, in abbreviated shape, in different places. it's, however, no longer intended to be a textbook. i've got geared toward a whole exposition of the phenomenological concept of linear viscoelastic habit for using the training scientist or engineer in addition to the educational instructor or scholar. The ebook is hence essentially a reference paintings. In accord with the motto above, i've got selected to explain the idea of linear viscoelastic habit by utilizing the Laplace transformation. The therapy oflinear time-dependent platforms by way of the Laplace transforms of the kin among the excitation upload reaction variables has by means of now develop into typical in different fields. With a few awesome exceptions, it has no longer been everyday in viscoelasticity. i'm hoping that the reader will locate this strategy helpful.
