G Barbero,L R Evangelista's An Elementary Course on the Continuum Theory for Nematic PDF

By G Barbero,L R Evangelista

This publication was once written to let physicists and engineers to benefit, inside of a unmarried path, a few issues in variational calculus, concept of elasticity, molecular types, and floor homes of nematic fabrics. It prepares graduate scholars for reports 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 distinctive shape. In understanding the recommendations, they've got analyzed, systematically and of course, the strategies and techniques of variational calculus. detailed 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 speculation 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.
