-A History of Mathematics / Historia de la Matemática
Uta C. Merzbach and Carl B. Boyer
"""This book overviews mathematics from the beginning of recorded history up until the mid 20th century. I like that it does not shy away from mathematical detail, but is still quite accessible (especially to someone from an engineering rather than mathematics background)."""
-Biomechanics: Mechanical Properties of Living Tissues
"""This book is the first in a series of three on mechanics in physiology and bio-engineering. This series is indispensable for researchers in the area of bio-engineering and the use of continuum mechanics and derivations from the laws of thermodynamics from the outset make the content very intuitive and satisfying to read."""
"""This is an ideal book for anyone wanting to get a deeper understanding of the theory used in common commercial finite element codes for solid mechanics. The maths content is at a slightly higher level than most undergraduate engineering courses, but I think the extra time invested in understanding it is well worth it."""
- Nonlinear Solid Mechanics: A Continuum Approach for Engineering
"""This is a gentle introduction to mathematical modelling of materials that undergo large elastic deformations, like rubber, skin and arteries. I found the opening chapters covered the required background material in vector calculus and tensor analysis in a very intuitive manner and I often use it as a reference."""
