Statistical mechanics of nonlinear elasticity
A method is suggested for defining a deformation-dependent
free energy in microscopic terms for a deformed elastic solid
and applied to a simple microscopic model of such a solid.
Some of the convexity and continuity properties of this
free energy function are derived.
