Tensorial Polar Decomposition of 2D fourth order tensors

Abstract : One studies the structure of 2D symmetric fourth order tensors, i.e. having both minor and major indicial symmetries. Verchery polar decomposition is rewritten in a tensorial form entitled Tensorial Polar Decomposition. Main result is that any 2D symmetric fourth order tensor can be written in terms of second order tensors only in a decomposition that makes explicitly appear invariants and symmetry classes. The link with harmonic decomposition is made thanks to Kelvin decomposition of its harmonic term.
