CONNECTIVITY COEFFICIENTS IN THE CHARACTERISTIC DETERMINANTS OF THE SYSTEMS OF EQUATIONS OF MOTION OF ISOTROPIC THERMOELASTIC MEDIAS. M. Bosyakov UDC 539.3 Characteristic determinants and characteristic equations have been obtained for the systems of equations of motion of isotropic thermoelastic media in stresses with allowance for the finite velocity of propagation of thermal disturbances. The connectivity coefficients of the mechanical and thermal fields under problems of different dimension have been determined. Belarusian State University, 4 Skorina Ave., Minsk, 220050, Belarus.
