The jumps of the strain and stress tensors on the surface of elastic
homogeneous or inhomogeneous ellipsoidal inclusions embedded in an elastic
matrix are obtained from results reported in the literature.
They are used to derive closed-form expressions for the thermodynamic force in
such matrix-inclusion systems that are subjected to a generally defined
homogeneous transformation eigenstrain.
