Abstract : Commonly, hypotheses introduced by Cauchy or Born are used to relate macroscopic deformation to atomic motions, in molecular theories of elasticity. Our purpose is to discuss the applicability of these to crystal-crystal phase transformations and the ambiguities which are involved in estimating the deformation from observations of lattice vectors.
