Abstract

Introduction of internal variables can be considered as a universal modelling tool for macroscopic field theories. It is based on minimal number of assumptions about the physical mechanism of the modelled phenomena. As long as evolution equations of internal variables are determined by basic macroscopic principles, we can expect that the validity of the evolution equations is independent of particular microscopic models.
