ODE TO THE PRINCIPAL AXES OF FINITE STRAIN!
Principal Axes of Finite Strain!
You alone can find
Which material lines are stretched the most and the least.
Which material lines will start and end mutually perpendicular.
Despite a deceptive pattern of changing lengths and angles
And the best part is how these lines are one and the same,
special lines of changing lengths and angles.
Only you see the beauty at the end
without the obfuscation in the middle.
Oh Principal Axes of Finite Strain!
