Inhomogeneities in Materially Uniform Simple Bodies
Many physical characteristics of continuously distributed matter are local in the sense that they pertain to individual material points and their immediate neighborhoods, rather than to a body as a whole. Examples of such local characteristics are: elastic response, viscosity, heat capacity, electrical conductivity, magnetic response, optical refraction, chemical composition, color.
