This textbook is a modern introduction to micromechanics and its applications. It analyzes various continuum models of solids with evolving microstructure based on the ﬁrst principles of mechanics and thermodynamics. The scope of the book ﬁts well a one-year graduate course for engineers with basic knowledge in mechanics as well as calculus and elementary tensor analysis. For this circle of readers the emphasis is made on the material modeling and the constructive methods of solution. To help the students become more proﬁcient, each chapter ends with exercises, of which some can be solved effectively by using the Mathematica. Difﬁcult tasks are marked with an asterisk.
