Main Title: Concepts of Mesoscopic Continuum Physics With Application to Biaxial Liquid Crystals
Author(s): Muschik, Wolfgang

Type: Article
Language Code: en
Abstract: The mesoscopic concept in continuum mechanics consists of extending the domain of the balance equations by the set of mesoscopic variables and of introducing a local distribution function of these variables as a statistical element. The balance equations defined on this extended domain and an example concerning liquid crystals of biaxial molecules are discussed.
