Perturbative density functional methods for cholesteric liquid crystals

Abstract:

We introduce a comprehensive numerical framework to generically infer the emergent macroscopic properties of uniaxial nematic and cholesteric phases from that of their microscopic constituent mesogens. This approach, based on the full numerical resolution of the Poniewierski-Stecki equations in the weak chirality limit, may expediently handle a wide range of particle models through the use of Monte Carlo sampling for all virial-type integrals. Its predictions in terms of equilibrium cholester...
