Exploring the design and use of micro- and meso-actuators, this book begins with theory and a general synopsis of the state-of-the-art in theoretical research. It discusses how to employ modern approaches in research and design activity, then presents a systematic list of already available products and details their potential for use. Design possibilities based on new technologies are clearly separated from those due to scale reduction, aiding in the selection of proper technology. The author takes a multi-physic approach to guarantee a comprehensive modeling technique, while the many references to experimental data and to existing microacutators assure an effective applicability of proposed theories.In addition, an additional and hidden purpose is pursued: to propose a coherent notation that accompanies the reader through the entire length of this monograph . ... that human limits and the knowledge of the author do not allow writing the last word on such a wide and complex subject. ... of a proper notation, and we cannot set aside the large number of works composed by many scientific societies andanbsp;...
