While the main structure of the volume is maintained, two extensions have been included in the 2nd edition: In Chap. 5 additional analytieal methods the eontinuous relaxation spectrum are included in the classieal eoneerning theory of linear viseoelasticity. These methods may be applied in the eontext of a rather new theory of finite linear viseoelastieity of ineompressible isotropie materials, presented in Chap. 13 in a thermome ehanieal eontext. The eonsideration of anisotropie viseoplastieity is eom pletely reformulated and extended to a general eonstitutive theory eovering classieal erystal plastieity as a special ease. The extensions would not have been possible without the basie work of Alexander Lion on linear and nonlinear viseoelastieity. Thomas Kersten supplied essential eontributions to the investigation of anisotropie viseo plastieity. Valuable eomments, given by Babis Tsakmakis on just this topie, are gratefully aeknowledged. I thank Stefan Hartmann and Christian Kardelky, who underlook the task of reading and eritieizing the new parts of the manuseript. Final thanks are addressed to Springer-Verlag and in partieular to Prof. Wolf Beiglbock for his ongoing support. Kassel, November 2001 Peter Haupt Preface to the First Edition This exposition of the theory of materials has its origins in the lectures I gave at the universities of Darmstadt and Kassel from 1978 onwards.qThe book will be invaluable to graduate students of materials science in engineering and in physics. The new edition includes additional analytical methods in the classical theory of viscoelasticity.
