Theorems of representations for tensor functions are valuable for modelling non-linear constitutive laws, particularly when the mechanical response of the material depends on more than one tensor agency. It is an approach that leads to the general invariant forms of the non-linear constitutive equations and gives the number and type of the scalar variables involved.
