The magnetic anisotropy of the B phase (assumed to be a Balian-Werthamer phase) is investigated within the Landau-Ginzburg theory. The anisotropy is determined by the action of the dipolar energy and the magnetic field on a single vector n→ and it is shown that walls will induce variations in n→ on a scale of RC∼0.1 cm. In the presence of a field H this characteristic length becomes RCHBH, where HB is of the order of 100 Oe.
