In 1909 the brothers E. and F. Cosserat discovered a new nonlinear group theoretical approach to elasticity (EL), with the only experimental need to measure the EL constants. In a modern language, their idea has been to use the nonlinear Spencer sequence instead of the nonlinear Janet sequence for the Lie groupoid defining the group of rigid motions of space. Following H. Weyl, our purpose is to compute for the first time the nonlinear Spencer sequence for the Lie groupoid defining the… 


The Mathematical Foundations of Elasticity and Electromagnetism Revisited
The first purpose of this striking but difficult paper is to revisit the mathematical foundations of Elasticity (EL) and Electromagnetism (EM) by comparing the structure of these two theories and
The mathematical foundations of gauge theory revisited
We start recalling with critical eyes the mathematical methods used in gauge theory and prove that they are not coherent with continuum mechanics, in particular the analytical mechanics of rigid
Why Gravitational Waves Cannot Exist
The purpose of this short but difficult paper is to revisit the mathematical foundations of both General Relativity (GR) and Gauge Theory (GT) in the light of a modern approach to nonlinear systems
The mathematical foundations of general relativity revisited
The purpose of this paper is to present for the first time an elementary summary of a few recent results obtained through the application of the formal theory of partial differential equations and
"Sur une forme nouvelle des ´ equations de la M´ ecanique"
We present in modern language the contents of the famous note published by Henri Poincare in 1901 "Sur une forme nouvelle des ´ equations de la Mecanique", in which he proves that, when a Lie algebra
Spencer Operator and Applications: From Continuum Mechanics to Mathematical Physics"
The Spencer operator, introduced by D.C. Spencer fifty years ago, is rarely used in mathematics today and, up to our knowledge, has never been used in engineering applications or mathematical
Generating Compatibility Conditions and General Relativity
The search for the generating compatibility conditions (CC) of a given operator is a very recent problem met in general relativity in order to study the Killing operator for various standard useful
Parametrization of Cosserat equations
The solution space of many systems of ordinary differential (OD) or partial differential (PD) equations in engineering or mathematical physics “can/cannot” be parameterized by a certain number of
It is suggested that the geometrical properties of space-time with some gauge symmetries can be determined by the physical properties of matter with the same gauge symmetries. With this principle
Differential Homological Algebra and General Relativity
In 1916, F.S. Macaulay developed specific localization techniques for dealing with "unmixed polynomial ideals" in commutative algebra, transforming them into what he called "inverse systems" of
