Given the common curiosity in macroscopic phenomena in liquid crystals, stemming from their purposes in monitors and units. the necessity has arisen for a rigorous but obtainable textual content compatible for graduate scholars, no matter what their medical history. This e-book satisfies that need.
The procedure taken during this textual content, is to introduce the elemental continuum idea for nematic liquid crystals in equilibria, then it proceeds to easy software of this thought- specifically, there's a dialogue of electric and magnetic box results which offer upward thrust to Freedericksz transitions, that are very important in units. this can be via an account of dynamic idea and basic viscometry of nemantics Discussions of backflow and flow-induced instabilities also are incorporated. Smetic conception can also be in brief brought and summarised with a few examples of equilibrium recommendations in addition to people with dynamic results. a couple of mathematical ideas, reminiscent of Cartesian tensors and a few variational calculus, are provided within the appendices.
