Show in two dimensions that the mean normal stress σm = (σxx +σyy)/2 is invariant under a rotation of the reference axes and is equal to one-half the sum of the major and minor principal stresses in the considered plane. In the context of this problem, invariant means independent of the magnitude of the rotation angle.
