Advanced Discretizations and Multigrid Methods for Liquid Crystal Configurations.

Emerson, David.

Abstract: Liquid crystals are substances that possess mesophases with properties intermediate between liquids and crystals. Here, we consider nematic liquid crystals, which consist of rod-like molecules whose average pointwise orientation is represented by a unit-length vector, n(x,y,z) = (n_1, n_2, n_3)^T. In addition to their self-structuring properties, nematics are dielectrically active and bi... read more
