Abstract : A static-geometric analogue is established in the presence of couple-stresses, using the appropriate threedimensional equations of equilibrium and compatibility for infinitesimal deformation. In the non-polar case, the analogue degenerates merely to the representation of the symmetric stress tensor in terms of a Gwyther-Finzi stress function. (Author)
