Abstract:

These notes provide the mathematical foundation for the boundary-integral equation method in computational solid mechanics. The basic ideas of potential theory are developed in both two- and three-dimensions. The equations of isotropic elastostatics, in indicial notation, are then expressed as integral equations involving only boundary information, and the numerical approximation of these equations is discussed. A current bibliography in the area of boundary-integral equations is included. Author
