The mechanics of continuous media is concerned with the motion and deformation of bodies. A body consists of material points X, which in the course of a motion change their position in space. Let x be the position in Euclidean space of the material point X at time t, which we interpret as the present time. Suppose that at time τ, say τt, this same material point X occupied the position ξ in . For the dependence of ξ on x, t,and τ, we write
$$\xi ={{\chi }_{t}}(x,\tau ). $$
