In the classical approach to elasticity problems, the components of the displacement field are the primary unknowns. In an "intrinsic'' approach, new unknowns with more physical or geometrical meanings, such as a strain tensor field or a rotation field for instance, are instead taken as the primary unknowns. We survey here recent progress about the mathematical analysis of such methods applied to linear and nonlinear three-dimensional elasticity and shell problems.
