An Elementary Course on the Continuum Theory for Nematic by G Barbero,L R Evangelista

By G Barbero,L R Evangelista

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
  • Molecular Models
  • Subsurface Deformations in Nematics

Readership: scholars in physics and electronics engineering; physicists and engineers in nematic liquid crystals.
