Rates of Change of Characteristics of Continuum

Pp. 38-52 (15)

M. Belevich


Methods of description of the rates of change of characteristics of a medium are studied. The rate of change of a place of a point of a body is considered. The rates of change of characteristics specified by scalar and vector functions are also discussed. The index summation convention is introduced.
