Paper Abstract

A theory for displacive phase transitions where the state in the sense of phase is characterized by an order parameter and phase interfaces are identified with thin transition zones across which the strain and order parameter exhibit large gradients is presented. Connections between this theory and more standard continuum approaches that identify phase interfaces with surfaces of strain discontinuity are discussed.
