Mesoscopic continuum mechanics applied to liquid crystals
Beyond the usual 5-ﬁeld theory (basic ﬁelds: mass density, velocity, internal energy), additional variables are needed for the unique description of complex media. Beside the conventional method of introducing additional ﬁelds by their balances, an other procedure, the mesoscopic theory, is here discussed and applied to liquid crystals.
