Abstract : The idea of a Motion is introduced as a mathematical framework within which to describe a fairly broad class of moving and deforming bodies. The implications of the definition are explored. In particular, the spacetime track of the motion is represented in terms of the instantaneous positions of the moving body. The spatial projections of the intersections of the spacetime track of a motion with characteristic cones are represented and studied. Finally, classes of smooth motions are identified. The additional properties of such motions, including the existence of a normal velocity field, are established. (Author)
