Abstract
Examples of irreversible thermodynamic theory of nonlocal phenomena are giv en, based on generalized entropy current. Thermodynamic currents and forces are identified to derive the Guyer-Krumhansl and Chan-Hilliard equations. In the latter case Gurtin's rate dependent additional term is received thro ugh the thermodynamic approach. (C) 2001 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights r eserved.
