Thesis

Calculus of variations and its application to liquid crystals

Abstract:

The thesis concerns the mathematical study of the calculus of variations and its application to liquid crystals.Throughout the thesis we will be looking to minimise integral functionals of the form

I(n) = Ω F(x,n,∇n)dx.

In the first chapter we examine vectorial problems in the calculus of variations with an additional pointwis...
