By Philippe G. Ciarlet

This monograph provides the elemental theorems of differential geometry in third-dimensional house, together with a radical insurance of floor thought. through a sequence of conscientiously chosen and consultant mathematical types this monograph additionally explains at size how those theorems are utilized in third-dimensional elasticity and in shell concept. The presentation is largely selfcontained, with an excellent emphasis on pedagogy. specifically, no "a priori" wisdom of differential geometry or of elasticity idea is believed, the one requisites are an affordable wisdom of easy research, sensible research, and a few acquaintance with usual and partial differential equations.

The impact of a policy may be unforeseen as in the case of busing for racially balanced schools (discussed in detail in Chapter 10). Whites were usually able to avoid having their children being bused by simply moving to the suburbs, which often meant a different school district. This “white flight” left the cities and their schools more racially unbalanced than before busing. Policy impact is a major component of an important focus of this text, the evaluation of public policy. Policy evaluation focuses principally on the impact of policy, because it is largely from the performance and consequences of policy that we assess its success or failure.

Policies also have long-term effects and short-term impacts. Both need to be considered in evaluation. Similarly, some policies have symbolic importance. The decision to build a new football stadium for a professional team may have great symbolic importance to the residents of a city. The stadium project may have been justified in part on the basis of making a world-class city and thus would be an intended symbolic benefit. Unintended and long-term costs can be illustrated by the Iraq War. With one out of six soldiers who served in Iraq suffering some degree of post-traumatic stress disorder or major health problem, likely long-term increases in health care costs, drug abuse, family violence, suicide, mental illness, and crime must be considered long-term costs.
