 Abstract    A continuum theory of a biaxial nematic phase in liquid crystals is presented. The liquid crys­ talline ordering is described by a field of three unit vectors. Because these are macroscopic directors, the present approach is a generalization of the Ericksen-Leslie theory to biaxial nematics. The applied tools from nonequilibrium thermodynamics are classical Linear Irreversible Thermodynam­ ics and Gyarmati's variational principle. Onsager reci­ procity relations; Gyarmati's variational principle. A S im p lifie d T h e rm o d y n a m ic T h e o r y f o r B ia x ia l N e m a tic s
