Tensors are denoted in different manners. Therefore, it seems to be necessary to give a short introduction into the denotation which will be used in the next sub-section. We will use the normal tensor notation for the description of COSSERAT- continua, whereas Professor LIPPMANN used unit base vectors. The difference will be pointed out at the end of sect. 4. 2.
