We present an energy formulation of continuum electro-elastic and magneto-electro-elastic materials. Based on the principle of minimum free energy, we propose a form of total free energy of the system in three dimensions, and then systematically derive the theories for a hierarchy of materials including dielectric elastomers, piezoelectric ceramics, ferroelectrics, flexoelectric materials, magnetic elastomers, magneto-electric materials, piezo-electric-magnetic materials among others.
