Physics of Continuous Matter, 2nd edition

Mathematica calculations

Virtually all non-trivial (and some trivial) calculations in the book have been carried out in Mathematica 9. In the table below these calculations are presented in Computable Document Format (CDF) which can be displayed with the Wolfram CDF player. It is freely available at the address and can be installed as a plugin for Internet Explorer. Alternatively, all the files may be downloaded in one go here.
