**MacLaurin's Physical Dissertations**

The Scottish mathematician Colin MacLaurin (1698-1746) is better recognized for constructing and lengthening Newton's paintings in calculus, geometry and gravitation; his 2-volume paintings "Treatise of Fluxions" (1742) used to be the 1st systematic exposition of Newton's tools. it truly is popular that MacLaurin used to be provided prizes via the Royal Academy of Sciences, Paris, for his past paintings at the collision of our bodies (1724) and the tides (1740); besides the fact that, the contents of those essays are much less time-honored - even if a number of the fabric is mentioned within the Treatise of Fluxions - and the essays themselves frequently demanding to procure.

Advances in computational mechanics can basically be completed at the foundation of fruitful dialogue among researchers and practicing engineers. This has been accomplished within the current ebook, which incorporates all of the papers awarded on the first foreign DIANA convention on Computational Mechanics.

**Boundary Element Analysis in Computational Fracture Mechanics**

The Boundary critical Equation (BIE) technique has occupied me to varied levels for the prior twenty-two years. The appeal of BIE research has been its exact mixture of arithmetic and functional program. The EIE technique is unforgiving in its requirement for mathe matical care and its requirement for diligence in growing potent numerical algorithms.

**Fracture Mechanics - Integration of Mechanics, Materials Science, and Chemistry**

Fracture and "slow" crack progress replicate the reaction of a cloth (i. e. , its microstructure) to the conjoint activities of mechanical and chemical using forces and are laid low with temperature. there's for that reason a necessity for quantitative figuring out and modeling of the impacts of chemical and thermal environments and of microstructure, when it comes to the foremost inner and exterior variables, and for his or her incorporation into layout and probabilistic implications.

C HA PT ER VI Remarks We add a few remarks to the described approach to the vector and tensor algebra. a) The notation introduced in this paper could be regarded as a contribution to the "direct" system of notation in the sense of Schauten ( 3) . Its usefulness for the vector and 39 Chap. VI - Remarks tensor analysis will be shown in a separate paper. b) The results of Chapter III and the related matter m Chapter V dealing with the connections of the bra and ket forms of vectors and tensors may be regarded as a contribution to the theory of "hybrid quantities" in the sense of Schauten [ 3] • c) We see from Chapter I that the assumptions (1.

In spite of the fact that we developed the described scheme for finite-dimensional vector spaces X(n) it can usefully be applied in a discussion of more general cases, i. e. in infinite-dimensional spaces X (oo) and X (C) He re we do not give a full and rigorous report but indicate Vector and Tensor Algebra 42 some plausible changes tobe made with some illustrations for application. First, we have to interpret the summation over double indices as sums with an infinite number of terms for n =- oo and as integrals over double in- dices for the continuum.
