Energy densities and crystalline materials. (Densités d’énergie et matériaux cristallins.) (French) Zbl 0769.73009

Summary: We show the existence of a stored energy functional having invariance properties consistent with some models in hyperelasticity for crystals and we study the associated problem of minimization.
