On thermodynamics and intrinsically equilibrated materials
The existence and uniqueness of free energy functions is demonstrated for a class of materials broad enough to contain as special cases those of the theory of finite elasticity, the theory of hypo-elasticity, and the theory of internal state variables for which the path of evolution is invariant under rescalings of time.
