Abstract: Exact explicit expressions are obtained for an isotropic tensor-valued function of a nonsymmetric second-order tensor, and its derivative, without resort to eigenvector calculations. These are then used to derive explicit expressions for the material time derivative of the general strain measures in terms of the deformation rate tensor.
