Download e-book for kindle: An Elementary Course on the Continuum Theory for Nematic by G Barbero,L R Evangelista

By G Barbero,L R Evangelista

This booklet was once written to allow physicists and engineers to benefit, inside of a unmarried path, a few issues in variational calculus, thought of elasticity, molecular types, and floor houses 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 in regards to the continuum conception of liquid crystals right into a detailed shape. In figuring out the options, they've got analyzed, systematically and of course, the concepts 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 assorted thoughts. 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.
