Revisiting the two-dimensional defect-free azimuthal nematic equilibrium on an annulus

Abstract:

We study the azimuthal defect-free nematic state on a two-dimensional annulus within a simplified and reduced two-dimensional Landau–de Gennes model for nematic liquid crystals. We perform a detailed asymptotic analysis of the instabilities of the defect-free state in terms of a dimensionless material and temperature-dependent variable and the annular aspect ratio. The asymptotic analysis is accompanied by a rigorous local stability result, again in terms of a dimensionless material and tempe...
