### Errors in the Text

• Page 310, Section 6.2, last paragraph: “The approach is to perform a though experiment”. It should be “thought experiment”.
• Section 6.3 (Large Strain Linear Viscoelasticity) is missing a push-forward operator. The results slightly wrong a very large strains without this correction.
• Equation (6.99) contains the equilibrium term $$E_0$$ which is not shown in Figure 6.13.
