The theory of order-disorder phenomena of different physical nature in binary alloy thin films of AB3 type is considered. The investigations are based on the model of the samples with restricted dimension when it requires the construction of a thermodynamically inhomogeneous system consisting of homogeneous subsystems. The main idea of the present description was introduced by Valenta in the approach showing the thin film in the form of monoatomic layers parallel to the surfaces and treated in the sense of Néel sublattices.
