We show that the nonlinear bending-torsion theory for inextensible rods arises as $\Gamma$ -limit of three-dimensional nonlinear elasticity.

    Z�schinger studied modules whose radicals have supplements and called these modules radical supplemented. Motivated by this, we call a module strongly radical supplemented (briefly srs) if every submodule containing the radical has a supplement. We prove that every (finitely generated) left...

    A transition of the deformation mode from heterogeneous, localized deformation to homogeneous deformation was observed in Zr50Cu40Al10 bulk metallic glass (BMG) by giant straining using the high-pressure torsion (HPT) method. The transition is accompanied by a pronounced decrease in hardness and...

    A necessary and sufficient condition for principal weak flatness of all right torsion free acts over a monoid is found. It is shown that the corresponding class of monoids is a proper subclass of left PP monoids.

    Torsionless acts over a monoid S are investigated, in particular torsionless factor acts of 2-free and 1-free acts. Monoids over which free or projective acts are torsionless and vice versa are characterized. Some necessary conditions for torsionless acts to be principally weakly fiat, weakly...

    Let M be a differentiable manifold with a (1,1) tensor field Sνμ(x). A notion of distorted torsion tensor is introduced that reduces to the ordinary torsion tensor when Sνμ=δνμ. It is then shown that the distorted torsion tensor satisfies a generalization of the first...
