The Graves Condition for Incompressible Finite Elasticity
The Graves and Weierstrass necessary conditions for minimizers are of central importance in the study of elastic materials that can undergo a change of phase. Proofs of these results applicable to the case of unconstrained materials abound. For the case of an incompressible material, however, only partial results have been established. Here, a complete proof is given.
