Lecture Notes (will be available),
TU München, 2005.
The lecture was held for students of the International Master Program in Computational Mechancis as well as for students of Civil Engineering at the Technische Universität München for the first time during summer term 2005. Lecture notes will be available. Please visit also the corresponding homepage for additional information and material (slides, maple worksheets and C++ code).
