ISBN-10: 9810232241

ISBN-13: 9789810232245

This publication used to be written to allow physicists and engineers to profit, inside a unmarried path, a few subject matters in variational calculus, concept of elasticity, molecular versions, and floor houses of nematic fabrics. It prepares graduate scholars for stories that require an easy wisdom within the physics of nematic liquid crystals.

With this attention in brain, the authors have formulated the issues in regards to the continuum conception of liquid crystals right into a exact shape. In figuring out the suggestions, they've got analyzed, systematically and of course, the thoughts and strategies of variational calculus. particular awareness 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 various ideas. 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.
