The deformation in a body is described by a number of generalized coordinate fields. To each of these correspond conjugate body and surface force fields. From the first and second laws of thermodynamics and invariance considerations the field equations of the theory are derived. Director, multipolar and multiple displacement theories arise as special cases. Author
