Medium of Complex Structure

  • Isaak A. Kunin
Part of the Springer Series in Solid-State Sciences book series (SSSOL, volume 26)


A movement of a particle in a medium of complex structure is described by the displacement of the mass center of the particle and by additional internal degrees of freedom: microrotations and microdeformations. In this chapter starting from simple models, we develop a general theory of media of complex structure. Essential attention is paid to new physical effects, approximate models and a transition to the classical local models.
