Harry F. Tiersten (1930-2006), Professor of Mechanics at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, passed away suddenly on June 12, 2006 from a heart attack. Professor Tiersten was one of the founders of continuum electrodynamics. In this paper we present a brief summary of Tiersten’s major contributions to the theories of continuum electrodynamics and their applications.

Attached is an article by Jia-shi Yang in memory of Professor Tiersten. It will be presented at the Fifth International Conference on Nonlinear Mechanics at Shanghai, China, June 11-14, 2007.
