Title: Introduction to Continuum Mechanics
    Part 1: Kinematics of a continuum body, deformation tensor, specific stress and Cauchy theorem, balance laws in Eulerian and Lagrangian formulation.
     Part 2: Constitutive equations, elastic and thermoelastic body, non-linear PDE system of thermo-elasticity and hyperbolicity, Linear elasticity and sound waves.
     Part 3: Ideal and real fluids, compressible and incompressible Euler fluids,  Navier-Stokes-Fourier constitutive equations.

Masaru Sugiyama (Nagoya Institute of Technology - Japan): Feb. 12th 15:00 - 17:00, Feb. 15th 14:00 - 14:50
Title:  Thermodynamics: Brief Overview
     Part 1: Classical Equilibrium Thermodynamics: The first law of thermodynamics Entropy and the second law of thermodynamics
     Part 2: Some Comments on Non-Equilibrium Thermodynamics Thermodynamics of irreversible processes Rational extended thermodynamics
 (Note: Part 1 is the main part of the Lecture.  If there remains time, Part 2 will be discussed very briefly).
