In this talk, I will introduce the concept of hyper-elastic Ricci flow. The equation of hyper-elastic Ricci flow amends the classical Ricci flow by the addition of Cauchy stress tensor which itself is derived from the free energy. The main implication of the theory is a uniformization of material behavior which follows from application of a parabolic minimum principle.
