This paper compares the performance of penalty and Lagrange multiplier approaches for the necessary unit-length constraint in the computation of liquid crystal equilibrium configurations. Building on previous work in [SIAM J. Sci. Comput., 37 (2015), pp. S157--S176; SIAM J. Numer. Anal., 53 (2015), pp. 2226--2254], the penalty method is derived and well-posedness of the linearizations within the n... read more
