The author of this great book is the editor of Trends in Nanoscale Mechanics (Springer, 2014). This book is written for undergraduate and graduate students, PostDocs, academic and industrial researchers and engineers. This book presents many examples of novel nanotechnology applications such as the nanotube based sensors, AFM probes, the nanotube based nanocomposites and multifunctional materials. This books presents mechanics of graphene sheets, deformation of the single wall carbon nanotubes, the structure of multi wall carbon nanotubes and nanocomposites. Only this book has in-depth review of the new Registry Matrix Analysis for the analysis of interfacial sliding of grapheme sheets. This book also presents the newly discovered nanoscale analog of the Pauli principle, i.e., the effect of spatial exclusion of electrons. Other important topics include classification of carbon nanotubes into four classes of lattice shells, the nanoscale homogenization criteria, a nanoscale analog of Newton's friction law and multiphysics modeling.
