Abstract

Rotational seismology is a newly emerging field of interest to scientists from widely differing disciplines. We compile here some suggested readings for those wishing to become familiar with disciplines relevant to rotational seismology and its engineering applications. These readings are not exhaustive but contain a number of basic references with occasional annotations. We concentrate on two areas: continuum mechanics and earthquake seismology. Continuum mechanics is the branch of mechanics that deals with the deformation and motion of materials, including various elasticity theories. Although classical elasticity works well for studying earthquakes in the far field, there are alternate elasticity theories that may be more appropriate for studying earthquakes in the near field. The readings in continuum mechanics are intended for seismologists and include (1) fundamental textbooks, (2) intermediate to advanced books, (3) heteromodular theories, and (4) Cosserat theory. A brief introduction to continuum mechanics for seismologists is included as an appendix. In addition, because we wish to attract workers in other disciplines to rotational seismology, we include a short list of suggested readings in earthquake seismology.
