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

By G Barbero,L R Evangelista

This booklet was once written to let physicists and engineers to profit, inside of a unmarried direction, a few themes in variational calculus, concept of elasticity, molecular types, and floor houses of nematic fabrics. It prepares graduate scholars for reviews 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 thought of liquid crystals right into a particular shape. In figuring out the strategies, they've got analyzed, systematically and of course, the suggestions and strategies of variational calculus. particular consciousness 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 assorted ideas. a whole 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.
