Part of the Interaction of Mechanics and Mathematics book series (IMM)


In this part we present five different situations in Mechanics, holonomic and non-holonomic, in Continuum Thermodynamics and in material Science where non-commuting variations appears as a necessary tool for the formulation of Variational Equations. In all five situations considered in this chapter tensor K is related to (or even defined by) some geometrical structure present in the configurational bundle-affine connection, non-holonomic frames, absolute parallelism and its torsion.
