Concise, fast-paced text introducing the concepts and
applications behind plane networks aimed at applied mathematicians,
mechanical engineers, geodesists and graduate students. Presentation
unfolds in a systematic, user-friendly style and goes from the basics
to cutting-edge research.
Key features include: * presentation of the basics required:
fundamental material from linear algebra and differential equations; *
examination of classical mathematical tools for analyzing discrete
networks, followed by a well-developed theory, which is the continuous
analogue of a discrete network; * numerous examples, illustrations,
