The author of a paper I was reading refers to the partial derivative of total elastic energy wrt position, partial derivative of surfacic energy wrt position, and partial derivative of strain wrt position.

Does anyone know of a good resource that explains these concepts?

I'm not as skilled with vector calculus, so a less aggressive reference is good.
