The totality of events is space-time. A change of frame is a one-to-one mapping of space-time onto itself such that distances, time intervals, and the sense of time are preserved. We expect that every such transformation should be a time-dependent orthogonal transformation of space combined with a shift of the origin of time. This is so. 3-1) where c(r) is a time-dependent point, Q(f) is a time-dependent orthogonal tensor, xo is a fixed point, and a is a constant. We commonly say that c(0 represents a change of origin (translation), since the fixed point x0 is mapped into c(r).
This condition does not follow from any general principle of mechanics. Since hydrostatic tensions of some magnitude have been produced, with extreme pains, in certain very quiet laboratories, perhaps the condition p(p) > 0 should be regarded as expressing stability rather than as a constitutive restriction. A fluid may react to its entire deformation history, yet its reaction cannot be different for different placements with the same density. A fluid reconciles these two seemingly contradictory qualities—ability to remember all its past and inability to regard one placement as different from another—by reacting to the past only insofar as it may differ from the present, which may be ever changing.
The reduced form enables us also, in principle, to reduce the number of tests needed to determine the response functional QK by observation. Indeed, consider pure stretch histories: Rr = 1. If we know the stress T corresponding to an arbitrary homogeneous pure stretch history Ur, we have a relation of the form T = QK (U')By (5) we then know T for all deformation histories. Alternatively, consider irrotational histories: W = 0. 2-1 l)i with W set equal to 0. If we know the stress corresponding to an arbitrary irrotational history, by putting the corresponding values of R into (5) we can again determine QK.
