This booklet used to be written to allow physicists and engineers to profit, inside of a unmarried direction, a few subject matters in variational calculus, conception of elasticity, molecular types, and floor homes of nematic fabrics. It prepares graduate scholars for experiences that require an easy wisdom within the physics of nematic liquid crystals.
With this attention in brain, the authors have formulated the issues about the continuum thought of liquid crystals right into a designated shape. In understanding the options, they've got analyzed, systematically and of course, the concepts and techniques of variational calculus. certain realization is devoted to the research of well-posed and ill-posed variational difficulties. The presence of sub-surface discontinuity within the nematic orientation is analyzed utilizing varied recommendations. an entire bankruptcy is dedicated to this element of the idea of elasticity of nematic media.
- Variational Calculus
- Theory of Elasticity I: Fundamentals
- Theory of Elasticity II: Applications

The layout of mechanical constructions with better and predictable toughness can't be accomplished with no thorough realizing of the mechanisms of fatigue harm and extra in particular the relationships among the microstructure of fabrics and their fatigue houses. Written by way of major specialists within the box, this publication (which is complementary to Fatigue of fabrics and buildings: program to break and layout, additionally edited by way of Claude Bathias and André Pineau), presents an authoritative, accomplished and unified therapy of the mechanics and micromechanisms of fatigue in metals, polymers and composites.
The instruction manual of Ellipsometry is a severe beginning textual content on an more and more serious topic. Ellipsometry, a size strategy in response to section and amplitude alterations in polarized mild, is turning into well known in a widening array of purposes as a result of expanding miniaturization of built-in circuits and breakthroughs in wisdom of organic macromolecules deriving from DNA and protein floor study.
