Applied math. talk: Blowup rate estimates of a singular potential in the Landau-de Gennes theory for liquid crystals by Xiang Xu, Old Dominion University.

March 1 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Zoom meeting United States

Abstract: The Landau-de Gennes theory is a type of continuum theory that describes nematic liquid crystal configurations in the framework of the Q-tensor order parameter. In the free energy, there is a singular bulk potential which is considered as a natural enforcement of a physical constraint on the eigenvalues of symmetric, traceless Q-tensors. In this […]
