2 Stretching and Spin 21 Solutions, which are called harmonic functions, are easy to obtain. The sum of two harmonic functions is a harmonic function, so the outcome of superposing two isochoric, irrotational flows is likewise an isochoric, irrotational flow, and complicated flows may be built up from simple ones in this way. In the nineteenth century many general properties of them were discovered, and general methods for calculating solutions of (37) such as to satisfy n • x = 0 on given boundaries were constructed.

4-8) This result (7) shows that it is not possible to express the effect of the deformation history on the stress entirely by measuring deformation with respect to the present configuration. While the effect of all the past history, 0 < s < oo, is accounted for in this way, a fixed reference configuration is required, in general to allow for the effect of the deformation at the present instant, as shown by the appearance of C(t) as a parameter in (7). The result itself is important in that it enables us to go as far as possible toward avoiding use of a fixed reference configuration.

2-10) Hence E(t)e~m is an orthogonal tensor, say Q(r). By (6), then F 0 (0 = Q(OQ(0-' M . 2-11) That the assertion of the theorem remains true even if H is merely continuous and E is completely arbitrary has been shown by W. Noll, "The representation of monotonous processes by exponentials," Indiana University Mathematics Journal 25, (1976): 209-14. 4,2 Monotonous Motions 47 The form asserted by Noll's theorem holds trivially if M — 0; if M 7^ 0, it follows if we set K := |M|, N0 = - M . ) Conversely, if (3) holds, an easy calculation shows that the motion is one with constant relative principal stretch histories.
