On the stability of thermoelastic materials. (English) Zbl 0952.74010
Summary: A notion of material stability is introduced and discussed in the setting of nonlinear thermoelasticity. We also establish necessary and sufficient conditions for stability of a general thermoelastic material. The adiabatic theory and the theory that accounts for heat conduction are considered separately.
