a body has the symmetry that its shape is unchanged by arbitrary rotations around axis, e_3, Show that any second-rank tensor calculated for the body will take the form:
a b 0
-b a 0
0 0 c

There is Euler's theorem, that says that a rotation around an axis is given by a matrix of the form , where the matrix is a rotation of the plane.
