Thermoelastic equations without energy dissipation are formulated
for a body which has previously received a large deformation and
is at nonuniform temperature. A linear theory of thermoelasticity
without energy dissipation for prestressed bodies is derived and
the uniqueness theorem for a class of mixed initial-boundary
value problems is established.
