dc.description.abstractMacroscopic modeling of ferroelectric properties refers usually to Landau-Ginzburg-Devonshire theory. This paper questions the meaningfulness of this term, discussing contributions of the three authors in the title to what is supposed to be a theory. The limitations of every contribution are analysed. In the main text and, to more extent in the Supplementary Material, the Landau theory is presented from an unusual perspective starting from simple mechanical models of spontaneous symmetry breaking and finishing by the Ising model. The aim of the presentation is to emphasize along with the qualitative breakthroughs the approximate character of macroscopic modeling associated with the above three authors. © 2020 Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.en_US
dc.description.sponsorshipAL is grateful to J.S. Young for his permission to use parts of a common unfinished work in the Supplementary Material, to B.A. Strukov for numerous useful discussions and to S.S. Krotov for providing references to papers on mechanical models of spontaneous symmetry breaking. He is also grateful to Sabanci University (Istanbul, Turkey) for allowing him to teach a postgraduate course in the Fall Semester of 2010 when some of pedagogical ideas presented in this paper were born, discussed, and elaborated.en_US
