Gabrio Piola works had an enormous impact on the development of applied mathematics and continuum mechanics. An excellent scientific committee who took it upon themselves to translate his complete works. In a second step, they commented Piola's work and compared it to modern theories in mechanics in order to stress Piola's impact on modern science and proofs that he has set milestones in applied mathematics.
This book presents Piola's original Italian texts together with is translations and their comments. It shows impressively that Gabrio Piola's work must still be regarded as a modern theory.
