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

By G Barbero,L R Evangelista

This e-book was once written to let physicists and engineers to benefit, inside of a unmarried direction, a few subject matters in variational calculus, idea of elasticity, molecular types, and floor houses 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 specified shape. In figuring out the recommendations, they've got analyzed, systematically and of course, the recommendations and techniques of variational calculus. distinct 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 various suggestions. 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.
