Summary:Off-axis Mohr circles are used to represent asymmetric second-order tensor quantities that describe deformation with homogeneous position gradients or flow with homogeneous velocity gradients. The validity of this representation is demonstrated and several problems of inhomogeneous deformation are explored. [M.E.J.]
