I'm currently working through volume 1 - mechanics. I'm planning on doing the whole series over the course of the next few years, but there are a few topics I'd like to get to before others. I was just wondering if they are meant to be read one after the other, or if they were just numbered as they were written (or maybe both are true?). Specifically I am wondering about the theory of elasticity, electrodynamics of continuous media (after reading the classical theory of fields), and physical kinetics.

I would really like to get to the theory of elasticity as soon as i can because they constantly claim things to be results of this theory in my engineering classes, and I'd very much like to see how. So are there any of the other books I should do first after mechanics before theory of elasticity, or can I go straight to it? I'm curious also about the other two volumes I mentioned above.

Thanks for your help

Edit: also, if you know of any math prerequisites besides mv calc on the level of calculus on manifolds, ODEs, and calculus of variations that are required, please let me know. Thanks again.
