Abstract : The basic laws of a special relativistic theory of continuous media suitable for the treatment of electromagnetic interactions with materials are formulated. The kinematics, dynamics and thermodynamics of a continuum are discussed from a relativistic viewpoint. Constitutive equations are deduced for thermoelastic solids, thermoviscous fluids and electromagnetic materials.
