Theory of the phenomenological charge of dislocations generated by a phase transition

  • A. Ya. Braginskii


For the case of a phase transition into a macroscopically inhomogeneous state described by the order parameter (OP) that is characterized by a multiarm star of a vector {ki}, a method for compensating the spatial variation in all star arms ki is proposed. To this end, a unified tensor field (OP connectivity) is considered, which is interpreted as a stress field potential. The OP-connectivity interaction is described by the phenomenological dislocation charge. Alternative ways of physical interpretation of the OP connectivity are discussed.
